The Pastor and Vicar General of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Rapid City has been named as the ninth bishop of the Diocese of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Father Steve Biegler says he has feelings of both sadness and excitement.
He says he's established deep relationships with people as a priest, but now it's time to make new ones.
Father Biegler says ministry is ministry wherever you go.
Father Steve Biegler says, "I see it more as a mission, we're always being sent by the Lord and so that's how we look at that, I guess through that lens, it's a mission and it's being faithful to that mission of the Lord and that's at least the lens I'm using to look at this."
Father Biegler will be ordained in Cheyenne on June 5th.
