Orlando Gets New Bishop

Catholics in the Diocese of Orlando woke up this morning to discover they had a new bishop. He’s Bishop John Noonan, the auxiliary bishop of Miami. Noonan, a native of Ireland, will take responsibility for the Orlando Diocese in December, a few weeks before Christmas.
Prior to becoming an auxiliary bishop in Miami, Noonan served in various parishes in the Archdiocese as well as the Dean of Men and rector at St. John Vianney College Seminary in Miami. Noonan has a reputation as a parish priest with a pastoral heart.
As a member of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Noonan serves on the Bishops’ Conference Committee on the Protection of Children and Young People.
