Bishop William E. Lori will become the 16th Archbishop of Baltimore tomorrow.  He has headed the diocese of Bridgeport, Conn. for the past eleven years, but before that he spent a lot of time in Maryland.

He earned a master’s degree from Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg in 1977, the same year he was ordained. He was briefly associate pastor of St. Joseph Parish in Landover, and then worked 18 years for Washington’s archbishop, the late Cardinal James Hickey, in Hyattsville.

Today Sheilah talks to Bishop Lori about contraception, immigration, same-sex marriage, and more.
