Vatican Names New Superior Bishop
James Powers Named Bishop
After going more than a year without a bishop, the diocese of superior is now complete.
James Powers got the call last week he’s been appointed by Pope Francis as the 11th bishop of the Diocese.
The promotion comes as a surprise for Powers who was most recently serving as the diocese administrator on a transitional basis.
“There’s a lot of mixed emotion and excitement and getting on with the life of the Diocese here,” said Powers.
Powers will be ordained February 18.
