Temporary administrator named for Milwaukee Catholic diocese

MILWAUKEE (WKOW)-- Auxiliary Bishop William Patrick Callahan has been selected to serve as administrator of the Milwaukee Roman Catholic Archdiocese until a new archbishop is selected.

Former Archbishop Timothy Dolan was installed April 15 as archbishop of New York.

A successor to lead the Milwaukee Archdiocese will be named by Pope Benedict XVI.

As diocesan administrator, Callahan will oversee day-to-day activities of the archdiocese in the interim.

The 58-year-old Callahan, a Franciscan and Chicago native, was elected by the archdiocesan College of Consultors, a group of priests who advise the local bishop.

He was named auxiliary bishop by the pope on Oct. 30, 2007.
