Monsignor Lenz elevated in rank

Monsignor Paul A. Lenz has been advanced to the rank of “prothonotary apostolic” by Pope Benedict XVI. This is the highest rank that can be given to a monsignor. It is granted in recognition of Monsignor Lenz’s work over the years as executive director of the U.S. bishops’ Black and Indian Mission Office.

Monsignor Lenz has now completed his service as director of that office and is working full-time on the cause for sainthood of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha.
