Successor named to Canadian bishop who disappeared for months

Catholic World News - September 15, 2010

Pope Benedict has named a successor to Bishop James Wingle, the Canadian bishop who resigned at the age of 63 in April and disappeared for four months. Bishop Wingle later said in an e-mail that he had been on sabbatical in Jerusalem.

The new bishop of the Diocese of St. Catharines (Ontario) is Auxiliary Bishop Gerard Bergie of Hamilton. In 2006, Bishop Bergie criticized a Catholic family and counseling center for inviting former US President Bill Clinton to speak at a fundraising dinner.
