Bishops ask for Early Notification of Campus Event-participation Requests St. Thomas Newsroom February 15, 2011 Archbishop John Nienstedt, Archbishop Emeritus Harry Flynn, and Auxiliary Bishop Lee Piché, Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, are planning their calendars for 2011 and 2012. Because of the high volume of invitations from parishes and other institutions, Nienstedt asks that all invitations for the coming year be submitted no later than Friday, April 1.All requests for the presence on campus of the bishops are handled through the President’s Office. Requests must include a completed “2011-12 Request for the Participation of a Bishop” form. The forms are available from Karen Hennes.“Participation of a Bishop” forms are requested even for tentative events rather than submitting them later; it is easier to cancel an event from the calendar than to add a new one.Questions? Call the President’s Office (651) 962-6500.
