WASHINGTON — Pope Francis has appointed the vicar general of the Diocese of Springfield, Ill., to be bishop of Wichita, Kan., and also named a priest of the Archdiocese of Newark, N.J., as an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Miami.

In Kansas, Msgr. Carl  Kemme, 53, vicar general and moderator of the curia in Springfield, will succeed Archbishop Michael Jackels, who was named to head the Archdiocese of Dubuque, Iowa, in April 2013.

Miami's newly named auxiliary is Msgr. Peter Baldacchino, also 53, who since 1999 has been chancellor of the Turks and Caicos Islands, a juridical mission of the New Jersey archdiocese.

The appointments were announced Feb. 20 in Washington by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, apostolic nuncio to the United States.
