POPE FRANCIS APPOINTS NEW BISHOP FOR DIOCESE OF JEFFERSON CITY
BISHOP ELECT SHAWN MCKNIGHT
Catholic leaders throughout Missouri are expressing gratitude to Bishop Emeritus John R. Gaydos while applauding Pope Francis’ selection of Bishop-elect W. Shawn McKnight of the Diocese of Wichita, Kansas, to succeed him.
Bishop-elect McKnight will be installed as the Jefferson City diocese’s fourth bishop on Feb. 6.
Pope Francis accepted Bishop Gaydos’ request for early retirement due to health concerns that have diminished his energy.
Bishop Gaydos, 74, is serving as apostolic administrator of the diocese until Bishop-elect McKnight’s installation and plans to continue residing in Jefferson City. Pope St. John Paul II appointed Bishop Gaydos bishop of Jefferson City in 1997.
“We’re blessed,” said Bishop Gaydos. “Bishop-elect McKnight … brings with him an abundance of gifts and experiences to continue and augment the ministry of Jesus Christ and His Church in the heartland of Missouri.”
Bishop-elect McKnight wrote the following to his parishioners in their parish bulletin edition for December 3rd .
My world changed on the morning of Monday, November 13th, when Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States (Pope’s Ambassador), called me out of the blue and told me the Pope had appointed me to Jefferson City. I was simply asked: “Do you accept?” And I simply responded: “I do accept.” A simple conversation, but a grace-filled moment.
Please remember me and my new diocese in your prayers. Gratias Agimus Domino! / Let us give thanks to the Lord!
