Temporary replacement for Archbishop Sample chosen
MARQUETTE, MI-- The Marquette Diocese has a new administrator.
The College of Consultors has elected Father Francis Dobrzenski of Lake Linden to serve in the post. He replaces the former Bishop Alexander Sample, who became Archbishop of Portland last week.
Dobrzenski will carry out administrative duties until Pope Francis appoints a new bishop or other apostolic administrator. He will also continue as pastor at St. Joseph Parish in Lake Linden.
Church law says the administrator’s function is to maintain the status quo until a new bishop takes possession of the diocese. No innovations are to be implemented.
