Erie bishop gets a bobblehead
ERIE, Pa. -- As a priest, he's probably not going to get a big head over it.
Erie Catholic Bishop Donald Trautman received a special gift in honor of his 75th birthday: A bobblehead in his likeness.
The Erie Times-News reports Bishop Trautman was presented with the swaying-headed statue last month at a gathering of priests from 13-county diocese.
Bishop Trautman calls the likeness "pretty close."
An Erie priest came up with the idea for the dolls, which were also distributed to all the priests in the diocese.
Bishop Trautman has sent his resignation letter to Pope Benedict XVI, as canon law requires for those turning 75. No replacement has been named.
