KAGAN NAMED APOSTOLIC ADMINISTRATOR OF FARGO DIOCESE The Most Rev. David Kagan, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Bismarck, has been named apostolic administrator of the Diocese of Fargo due to the appointment of the Most Rev. Samuel Aquila as archbishop of the Denver Archdiocese. The appointment, as approved by Pope Benedict XVI, becomes effective Wednesday.
During any "sede vacante" (vacant see), the period of time between bishops, one of two scenarios takes place. Either the pope appoints an apostolic administrator, as he did with the appointment of Kagan, or a "college of consultors," a committee made up of diocesan priests, elects a priest as administrator to lead a diocese until a permanent bishop is named. The process typically takes between eight months to a year or more.
