Bishops ask for early notification of campus event-participation requests St. Thomas Newsroom March 16, 2010 Archbishop John Nienstedt, Archbishop Emeritus Harry Flynn, and Auxiliary Bishop Lee Piché, Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, are planning their calendars for 2010 and 2011. Because of the high volume of invitations from parishes and other institutions, Archbishop Nienstedt asks that all invitations for the coming year be submitted no later than Thursday, April 15.All requests for the presence on campus of the bishops are handled through the President’s Office. Requests must include a completed “2011 Request for the Participation of a Bishop” form. The forms are available from Karen Hennes.“Participation of a Bishop” forms are requested now 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.
