Bp Richard Gagnon Transferred - Becomes Archbishop of Winnipeg

Today it was announced in Rome that His Holiness Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of the Most Reverend James Weisgerber as Archbishop of Winnipeg, according to canon 401 §1, and appointed the Most Reverend Richard Gagnon, currently Bishop of Victoria in British Columbia, as Archbishop of Winnipeg. The Holy Father has appointed Most Reverend James Weisgerber as Apostolic Administrator of Winnipeg until the new Archbishop takes canonical possession of the Archdiocese.

Congratulations, Your Excellency!  Ad multos annos!
