New Bishop of Salt Lake City - Bishop John C. Wester

Bishop John C. WesterToday's news from Rocco Palmo at Whispers in the Loggia includes a post announcing the appointment of San Francisco archdiocese auxiliary Bishop John C. Wester as the new Bishop of the Diocese of Salt Lake City. He succeeds Archbishop George Niederauer who left Salt Lake City in December, 2005, to become the Archbishop of San Francisco.

I haven't seen any official postings up yet at either Web site for San Francisco or Salt Lake City, but I'll post up some links as I find them. (Kudos to Monterey diocese's web gurus for posting up bios, pics, and press releases on their home page immediately on the announcement of their new bishop.)

Update:
Here is the Archdiocese of San Francisco's press release.
And here is the Diocese of Salt Lake City's home page with a much nicer pic of the new Bishop.
