Welcome to Wichita, Monsignor Kemme

kemmeCongratulations to Monsignor Carl Kemme on being named the next bishop of Wichita. Kemme, who is currently vicar general for the Diocese of Springfield, Ill., will be ordained in Wichita May 1. Kemme said he did not seek the position and thought there were many other priests who were more qualified. His humility and pastor’s heart likely were reasons why Pope Francis chose him.
