Five Things To Remember On April 27

1. Pope Francis has named Bishop John C. Wester of Salt Lake City, 64, as Archbishop of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and has accepted the resignation of Archbishop Michael Sheehan, 75, from pastoral governance of that diocese.

2. During the weekend, USCCB President Archbishop Joseph Kurtz opened the March for Marriage in Washington with a speech. You can read it here and and listen to it as well.

3. In the aftermath of the earthquake in Nepal, Catholic Relief Services has committed resources to relief efforts. CRS and their Caritas partners have begun procuring emergency relief materials such as tarpaulins/shelter kits and water, sanitation and hygiene materials. CRS urgently needs help. Donations will help immediate emergency response and allow CRS to reach even more affected families.

4. Pope Francis ordained 19 new priests during the weekend and had some advice for them: no boring homilies.

5. God loves you.
