With the news yesterday that Cincinnati Native Bishop Daniel Conlon is being moved from Steubenville to Joliet, IL; and with the impending ordination of Bishop-elect Joseph Binzer, I ask:
Who was the last bishop to be ordained in the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains?
Dr. Dan gets the prize! Bishop Jack Kaising is so far the last bishop to actually be ordained in the city of Cincinnati. A priest for Cincinnati, he spent most of his career as a chaplain with the Army. When he retired from there, he took a parish on Cincinnati's westside, but was called shortly thereafter to take up the post as an Auxiliary for the Archdiocese of the Military Service. He was ordained in the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains on April 11, 2000. Unfortunately, he passed on to his eternal reward a mere seven years later: 13 January, 2007. May he rest in peace.
