According to the Diocese of Springfield, Bishop Elect Dan Martins has received the necessary consents from Standing Committees. "Responses from the Standing Committees: Consents: 64, Non-Consents: 15." This was updated December 25th. Merry Christmas, Dan. Hopefully the necessary bishops consents will follow soon.
Then perhaps we can get on with the task of building each other up so that we all get about the life of a people of faith.
