Welcome Bishop Libasci!
Word is that the formal announcement at ten am today will be to announce that Manchester's tenth bishop will be Bishop Peter Libasci of Rockville Center, NY. Before being an auxilary bishop for Rockville Centre, Libasci, a native of Queens, spent his entire priestly ministry working in the area of pastoral work, particularly in the area of Catechesis. According to prominent Catholic blogger Rocco Palmo, Libasci will be installed on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 8th.
I will keep you posted.......
