Father Don Anstoetter, who grew up at St. Joseph’s Parish in Manchester, is in Rome as the conclave gets underway, KMOV reports.
According to a KMOV report, Father Don Anstoetter, who grew up at St. Joseph’s Parish in Manchester, is in Vatican City with other priests from the St. Louis Archdiocese.
Anstoetter is a seminary student in Rome, according to KMOV's report.
As previously reported by Patch, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of the Roman Catholic archdiocese of New York and a native of Ballwin, was immediately mentioned as a possible successor when news broke in February that Pope Benedict XVI would resign.
Dolan is also in Rome as the conclave gets underway.
A new pope could be named as early as Tuesday.
