Bishop Carlson makes changes to Saginaw


Well, with what y’all know about Saginaw, what do we make of this?

It’s also in the “News” section at:

I’m curious to see where this will go from a liturgical standpoint, hence my posting it here

Fr. Ron Wagner will move from St. Mary’s Cathedral to Holy Family (Fr. Bill Taylor is retiring).

Fr. Jim Bessert will move from St. Brigid in Midland to St. Mary’s Cathedral.

The Diocese liturgy guy is going to the Cathedral and the current Cathedral rector is going to a more traditional-style church.

Also, Saginaw Holy Family is getting a Permanent Deacon this spring.

It’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out.
