Pope Benedict accepts resignation of St. Paul and Minneapolis archbishop

.- Today the Holy Father accepted the resignation of Archbishop Harry J. Flynn from the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis in Minnesota.  He will be succeeded by Archbishop John C. Neinstedt.

According to the web site of the Archdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Archbishop Flynn, who reached the mandatory age for submitting resignation from pastoral care, 75, was ordained a bishop in 1986.  After serving the Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana, he was named Coadjutor Archbishop for the Archdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul in 1994.  He has held the position of Archbishop since 1995.

The new Archbishop of Minneapolis and St. Paul, John Neinstedt was ordained a bishop in 1996 and served the Archdiocese of Detroit.  In 2001 he was appointed to be the Bishop of the Diocese of New Ulm, Minnesota. 

Last April, the Holy Father appointed Neinstedt as the Coadjutor Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
