Listening Session on New Archbishop Is Wednesday

Archbishop Bernard Hebda, apostolic administrator of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, will hold his eighth and final listening session at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4, in Woulfe Alumni Hall to hear what people want to see in the next archbishop.

Hebda is coadjutor archbishop of Newark, New Jersey. Pope Francis appointed Hebda to his interim role in the Twin Cities after the resignation of Archbishop John Nienstedt in June, and he has held listening sessions since early October.

“Archbishop Hebda will lead the sessions to hear your input our strengths, our challenges and what characteristics are important in a new archbishop,” the archdiocese said. “Feedback gathering during these sessions will be shared with those responsible for advising Pope Francis as he makes this important choice.”
