Archbishop Naumann revises assignments made by Finn days before resignation


Reversing course on an earlier decision to uphold 23 pastoral assignments made by Bishop Robert Finn days before his resignation, Kansas City, Kan., Archbishop Joseph Naumann has revised 14 of those assignments for the Kansas City-St. Joseph, Mo., diocese.

News of his decision came Friday morning in an email from Kansas City-St. Joseph spokesman Jack Smith to the diocese’s priests.

“After prayerful deliberation and consultation with his advisors, Archbishop Naumann has decided to modify some of the assignments previously made,” he wrote.
