The mission continues, now in Miami

Mar 19, 2014

Back to Galleries A crowd of more than 1,200, many of them playing guitars and banging drums in the hot sun outside, watched as Bishop Peter Baldacchino was ordained auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Miami during a festive and pageantry-filled ceremony on the feast of St. Joseph, March 19. Archbishop Thomas Wenski, whom Bishop Baldacchino will serve as auxiliary bishop, was the consecrator, with Archbishop Patrick Pinder of Nassau, Bahamas, and Archbishop Charles DuFour of Kingston, Jamaica, serving as co-consecrators. Also present was Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, emeritus of Washington, D.C., who ordained Bishop Baldacchino as a priest and a deacon when he was archbishop of Newark, N.J.
