From the Messenger...Bishop Roger Foys celebrated Mass at Holy Spirit Parish, Newport, July 30, and also presided at the installation rite of its third pastor, Msgr. William Cleves. In his homily Bishop Foys explained that a pastor makes the bishop present to his congregation. Msgr. Cleves is a native of Newport’s neighboring city Bellevue. In his closing remarks, and to the delight of the congregation, Msgr. Cleves joked that when he was ordained 33 years ago he didn’t realize it would take so long to get back to Campbell County.
