GREEN BAY – The Vatican has accepted the retirement of Auxiliary Bishop Robert Morneau.
The Diocese of Green Bay says Morneau will continue as the pastor at Resurrection Catholic Parish, but was relieved of his other duties.
Morneau turned 75 on Sept. 10. All Catholic bishops are required to retire when they reach 75.
Moreau was born in New London and ordained to the priesthood in 1966. Morneau became an Auxiliary Bishop in 1979. He was one of the first American priests to be named a bishop by Pope John Paul II.
Going forward, Bishop Morneau will be addressed as Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus Robert Morneau of Green Bay.
