Overview: Provine of Nebraska

This province covers the state of Nebraska and is composed of the metropolitan Archdiocese of Omaha and its suffragan Dioceses of Grand Island and Lincoln.

Archbishop George Joseph Lucas (60) is the ordinary of the Archdiocese of Omaha. He celebrated 10 years as a bishop a week ago.

The Diocese of Grand Island is led by Bishop William Joseph Dendinger (70). He celebrated his 5th anniversary of consecration as a bishop last week as well.

Bishop Fabian Wendelin Bruskewitz (74) is the head of the Diocese of Lincoln. He will celebrate 50 years as a priest in July. He will reach the normal retirement age in September. His retirement and the naming of his replacement is likely late next year or early in 2011.

Other than the new ordinary for Lincoln, this province is likely to be stable for several more years.
