Bishop John Ricard submits resignation due to health...

Over a year since suffering a significant stroke, Bishop John Ricard of Pensacola-Tallahassee has submitted his resignation to Pope Benedict.

A Louisiana native who oversaw Baltimore's inner-city parishes for 13 years as an auxiliary in the Premier See, Ricard has served at the helm of the Gulf Coast diocese since 1997. Prior to being given the high-hat at the young age of 44, the bishop pastored three parishes in Washington alongside earning a doctorate from the Catholic University of America.
