DETROIT — On March 19, Pope Francis appointed Detroit's Bishop Gerard W. Battersby as the 11th bishop of the Diocese of La Crosse, Wis.

As the former Detroit auxiliary bishop — a lifelong Detroit native — prepares for his installation May 20 at the Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman in La Crosse, he sat down with Detroit Catholic one final time to reflect upon his love for Detroit, his formation as a bishop, and how he looks forward with confidence in the Holy Spirit to serving his new flock.
