Bishop of Nashville
Monday, the Most Reverend David R. Choby will be ordained and installed as the new Bishop of Nashville. Bishop-elect Choby has been our pastor since we moved to Sumner County over 15 years ago, and he has been a pastor in every sense of the word. Pope Benedict XVI has blessed the Diocese of Nashville by giving this man to the diocese as Bishop. We, at St. John Vianney Church in Gallatin, are pleased and proud, but also a little sad about sharing our treasure with the rest of Middle Tennessee.
We had a great party for Father/Bishop-elect Choby last night. In the process, I learned the design of his new episcopal coat-of-arms. I am sure that a better version will be available soon, but in the mean-time, here is my inadequate rendition.
