PHOTOS: Bishop McKnight prays the Rosary with deacons of the diocese

First of several events leading up to his ordination


Bishop-elect W. Shawn McKnight prays and meditates on the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary with permanent deacons, deacon candidates, and their wives the afternoon of Sunday, Feb. 4, at Father Tolton Regional Catholic High School in Columbia. It was the first of several prayerful events leading up to his Feb. 6 ordination and installation as the fourth bishop of the Jefferson City diocese. After praying together, Bishop McKnight and the deacons took part in separate acts of service, including the bishop-elect visiting the sick at a local hospital and greeting recently resettled refugees.
