Jan 13: We have a new Bishop!!

This was one unique occasion we had - to attend a bishop's ordination. We were blessed to know Bishop Rice while he was Monsignor because he celebrated mass for our community at our convent. What a wonderful and holy man of God! The ordination was just beautiful and the music...heavenly! We were among hundreds of Catholic folk gathered at the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica ( where Archbishop Carlson ordained now Bishop Rice to be an auxillary bishop of St. Louis. Bishop Rice is known for his work in promoting vocations in the St. Louis area. In his role as the vocation director for the diocese, I think he visited almost all the Catholic schools and spoke about vocations! What a heart on fire for God...amazing. Go bishop! You have our prayers :-)
