Bishop Kicanas succeeds Archbishop Dolan as Catholic Relief Services chairman

Catholic World News - November 18, 2010

Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, whose term as president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is drawing to a close, has appointed Bishop Gerald Kicanas of Tucson as the new chairman of the board of Catholic Relief Services.

Bishop Kicanas succeeds Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, who defeated Bishop Kicanas in the November 16 USCCB presidential election, and who supported the new appointment for Bishop Kicanas.

    I was jubilant to learn that bp Kicanas was not selected (automatically) as the President of USCCB (and hope that abp Dolan will become a leader-for-present-times and DO the needed job); working for CRS' subcontractor (in the foreign assistance projects) and seeing a waste and mishandling of funding, I am even more concerned about bp Kicanas handling that particular sector of Catholic Relief, based on our contributions. Bad news!!
