Boston gets its Bishops

Rocco tells us Boston has finally had its Auxiliary Bishops named. The empty posts are filling fast and furious these days.

As those of you adept at reading between the lines knew to expect, the Pope has named Fathers John A. Dooher, 63, and Robert F. Henessey, 54, as auxiliary bishops of Boston. The announcement comes but twelve days after O'Malley reemphasized his request in a meeting with the new Secretary of State.
