Bishop-designate Dewane, 56, has been under-secretary of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace since March 2001. He will become coadjutor bishop and vicar general of the Venice Diocese within the next three months after his ordination as bishop at Epiphany Cathedral, Venice.

As coadjutor, Bishop-designate Dewane will serve until the retirement or death of Bp. John Nevins of Venice. Bp. Nevins, 74, is the first bishop of the Venice Diocese, which was created in 1984.   Full story ...
