'Stralia Buzz

A source from Oz -- and a very good source at that -- has sent word of the imminent appointment of Bishop David Walker of Broken Bay as archbishop of Canberra and Goulburn, succeeding Frank Carroll, who submitted his resignation at his 75th birthday a month ago.

Walker, I'm told, had dinner with his "entire" family in Sydney a couple hours ago -- possibly to divulge the news? -- and is off for retreat tomorrow....

I wonder what Pat Power thinks.

I do not think you are correct about WAlker. The rumours here in Australia are about his retirement rather than his translation, He is no leading light of the Australian episcopacy. He presides over a diocese that has few vocations. It has money and not much else. The next Archbishop of Canberra-Goulborn will more likely come from Bishops Coleridge (Auxilairy Melbourne), Hurley ( Port Pirie) or Toohey (Wilcannia-Forbes).

Hi Rocco. Just to let you know there's been a lot of talk in Melbourne about Bishop Mark Coleridge going to either Queensland or Canberra. Either way, I'd happily follow him to either place. He's a top bloke and a good priest.
