New York auxiliary bishop named to head Diocese of Camden, NJ

 | 

Pope Benedict XVI has accepted the resignation of Bishop Joseph Galante of Camden, N.J., and has named Auxiliary Bishop Dennis Sullivan of New York to succeed him.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, papal nuncio to the U.S., announced the changes Tuesday in Washington.

Galante, 74, has headed the Camden Diocese since 2004. He previously served as auxiliary bishop of San Antonio, bishop of Beaumont, Texas, and coadjutor bishop of Dallas.

Sullivan, 67, was named auxiliary bishop of New York in 2004. He was ordained to the priesthood in the archdiocese in 1971.

Police recover stolen Bible after church's string of bad luck

A scruffy-looking man walked up and down St. Louis' antiques row, trying to peddle an old Bible to store owners, but several thought something was amiss.

Kenez Jakovac of Hammonds Books said he felt the same way, but paid the man $30 for the Bible on Dec. 23. Jakovac said he believed the Bible was worth $500 to $1,000 and he suspected it might be stolen.

He said he did an Internet search the day after Christmas and found a Post-Dispatch story about a special Bible stolen from St. Johns Lutheran Church just days before Christmas services.
