The pope has named Monsignor Samuel Aquila as the new archbishop for Denver, Colorado, filling an important U.S. post left vacant after Archbishop Charles Chaput moved to Philadelphia.
The 61-year-old Aquila, currently bishop of Fargo, North Dakota, is returning home in many ways, having studied at Denver's St. Thomas Seminary and worked in several Colorado parishes following his ordination in 1976.
Also Tuesday, the Vatican announced that Pope Benedict XVI had named a new bishop for Buffalo, New York, tapping Monsignor Richard Malone to replace the retiring Bishop Edward Kmiec. Malone is currently bishop of Portland, Maine.
