VENICE, Fla. -- The 1,500 people who attended the episcopal ordination of Bp. Frank Dewane outnumbered the total population of Cooperstown, the farming village 20 miles southwest of Green Bay that is the bishop's hometown.

But nearly 10% of Cooperstown's 1,403 residents - 126 people - came to Epiphany Cathedral in Venice July 25 for the ordination of their native by Bp. John Nevins as his coadjutor.

Four cardinals, 22 bishops, 200 priests and 53 nuns as well as deacons, Knights of Columbus and Knights and Dames of Malta contributed to the celebration.
