New Diocese in Virginia?
Interesting. I must have been way outside the rumour mill on that one.
Can you comment on the rumor that another diocese will be formed in Virginia?
The Richmond papers indicated that Bishop Walter Sullivan had actually proposed a division of the Diocese of Richmond and discussed it with his priests. Given that Bishop DiLorenzo just arrived, I would say that he would have to evaluate this proposal and, if he thinks that it would be a good recommendation, propose it to the Holy See. For the present, he is making his first priority to get to know the diocese.
Word of advice to DiLorenzo: Patch up Richmond first. Then worry about divvying it up.
