The announcement was made Wednesday, Oct. 14, in Washington, D.C. by Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the U.S. papal nuncio.
Pope Francis made the announcement on Wednesday morning that Rozanski, bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield, will replace the retiring Robert J. Carlson in St. Louis.
Rozanski was greeted by each class he visited with an enthusiastic group wave and "Hi, Bishop!" A lot of parishioners toured the school along with him. Rozanski liked what he saw.
