We have a Bishop

...or at least we will soon!

This morning the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI appointed the Most Reverend Thomas J. Paprocki, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago and Titular Bishop of Vulturara, to the See of Springfield in Illinois, which has been vacant since Archbishop George J. Lucas was appointed to the See of Omaha on the third of June, 2009. The Bishop-elect will be the eighth Bishop of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois.
You can find more information as it is available here.

Welcome, Bishop Paprocki!
