Introducing His Excellency, The Most Reverend Joseph R. Kopacz, 11th Bishop of Jackson

On February 6, 2014, the Most Rev. Joseph R. Kopacz was ordained and installed as the eleventh bishop of the Diocese of Jackson. Here is some of the installation coverage:

And here are links to some of the earlier coverage of Bishop Kopacz's appointment and move down south from Mount Pocono in the Diocese of Scranton, PA:
Catholic Television ran a half-hour interview with Bishop Kopacz on January 28, 2014, which can be downloaded from the Diocese of Scranton website, here. Also, the installation Mass itself can be viewed from a Diocese of Jackson web page, here.

Finally, Bishop Kopacz has selected Fiat Lux ("Let there be light") as his episcopal motto and the coat of arms shown below (which I shamelessly lifted from the heraldry blog of Fr. Guy Selvester):

Please join us all at Una Voce Mississippi in warmly welcoming our new Bishop!
