The Vatican announced on March 12, 2015 that Pope Francis has appointed Most Reverend Thomas A. Daly, DD, as the seventh Bishop of Spokane.
Bishop Daly, currently Auxiliary Bishop of San José, CA, and before that, a priest of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, was in Spokane for a press conference followed by a reception with the clery of the diocese. Our pastor, Father Kevin, was able to meet Bishop Daly and filmed a brief video greeting from the new bishop to our Catholic Cougs.
Bishop Daly was installed as our bishop on May 20, 2015. He visited St. Thomas More on Sunday, August 30th, to celebrate our Masses and welcome our students to our Newman ministry.
