The National Council of Catholic Women is pleased to announce the appointment of Bishop William Wack of the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee as the new Episcopal Liaison to the National Council of Catholic Women.
"A Midwestern boy with a happy childhood and Catholic upbringing, Bishop Wack was born and raised in South Bend, Indiana as the second-youngest of ten children (for a feature story about his “growing up years” go here). Although Bishop Wack is used to hearing his name pronounced in a variety of ways, he prefers the German pronunciation, which sounds like “wok” (think of the large, round frying pan).
His grade school days included attending Christ the King Grade School, followed by LaSalle (public) High School, after which he spent one year at Holy Cross College. He later graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in 1989. Bishop Wack entered formation in the college seminary with the Congregation of Holy Cross at Notre Dame, Indiana. After graduation, he traveled to Cascade, Colorado to join the Holy Cross Novitiate for one year (1989-90), and professed first vows in Holy Cross at the conclusion of the Novitiate. He then returned to Notre Dame to pursue a Masters of Divinity degree, which he received in May 1993.
