Knoxville Bishop may be New Archbishop of Louisville

From the Courier Journal:

Joseph Kurtz, 60, head of the Knoxville diocese since 1999, could be announced as the new head of the larger, Louisville archdiocese as early as Tuesday, according to an article Philadelphia-based Tablet writer Rocco Palmo posted Saturday on his blog, Whispers in the Loggia.

Kelly retired last year when he turned 75, but remains on the job until Pope Benedict XVI names a replacement.

Cecelia Price, a spokeswoman for the Louisville archdiocese, said she couldn’t comment.
