On Monday, I was elected by the Consultors of the Diocese of Austin to serve as Administrator during the interim before a new bishop is named. I am very grateful for the confidence and trust my brother priests have placed in me. I look forward to serving the diocese in this way.
We do not know when a new bishop will be named; however, the process may take six months to one year. I hope each one of us and every parish community will pray daily for the person who will be named by the Holy Father as the bishop of Austin.
In the meantime, let us work together for the greater honor and glory of God and to advance the mission of Jesus Christ in our diocese. I assure you of my prayers for the diocese and for each person, especially those who are sick or in need.
During this Year for Priests, let us remember to pray for priests so that we may be holy and be renewed in spirit.
I thank everyone that has called, e-mailed or sent congratulatory notes. I gratefully acknowledge your best wishes.Msgr. Michael Mulvey
Please keep Msgr. Mulvey in your prayers.
