From Whispers in the Loggia comes this news:

"This morning, Benedict XVI appointed Msgr Robert Guglielmone, rector of St Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre, as the 13th bishop of Charleston, one of the nation's eight oldest dioceses. In the post shepherding the Palmetto State's 185,000 Catholics, the 63 year-old pick succeeds Bishop Robert Baker, who was transferred to the diocese of Birmingham in August 2007."

It is nice to see the Diocese of Rockville Centre exporting a priest to become a Bishop, something I do recall seeing before. I know Bishop Cardone of the Solomon Islands (brother of Fr. Thomas Cardone of Kellenberg) is a native Long Islander but don't know of any other LI bishops serving elsewhere. Telecare will broadcast Bishop Murphy introducing Msgr. Guglielmone at 11 AM tomorrow. Best of luck to Msgr. Guglielmone!
