.- The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops announced that Pope Benedict XVI has named Monsignor Frank J. Dewane, Undersecretary of the Holy See’s Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, as Coadjutor Bishop of the Diocese of Venice, Florida.

Bishop-designate Dewane was named to the Pontifical Council in 2002 and will now hold the right of succession to Venice’s Bishop John J. Nevins, in the event of his death or retirement.

Msgr. Dewane was named a priest for the Diocese of Green Bay in 1988 following a career in international business and subsequent theological studies at the Gregorian Angelicum and North American Pontifical colleges in Rome.

He has been involved as a Holy See observer to the United Nations and served with the Vatican’s charitable organization, Cor Unum in addition to his role on the Council of Justice and Peace.

Archbishop Pietro Sambi, Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S., announced the appointment  in Washington D.C.
