New auxiliary bishop of Detroit hails from Texas

.- Pope Benedict XVI has named Msgr. Daniel Flores, 45, of Corpus Christi, Texas, to assist Cardinal Adam Maida as a new auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Detroit.  

The installation and consecration of Bishop-elect Flores will be held Nov. 29 at Detroit’s Blessed Sacrament Cathedral.

Cardinal Maida said the new bishop’s ministry will include a special focus on the Hispanic community in the archdiocese. Bishop-elect Flores said in a press release that he was humbled by the appointment and looks forward to serving in his new diocese.

Bishop-elect Flores was born in Palacios, Texas, and grew up in Corpus Christi. He was ordained a priest in January 1988 and served the diocese as rector of Corpus Christi Cathedral and as chancellor. Flores completed his License in Sacred Theology in 1997 and his Doctorate three years later at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum) in Rome.  

He also served in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston on the formation faculty, as vice-rector of St. Mary’s Seminary and on the teaching faculty at the University of St. Thomas School of Theology.

Detroit has 1.3 million Catholics and currently has three other active auxiliary bishops. They are Bishops Earl Boyea, John Quinn, and Francis Reiss.
