Bishop-elects Jean-Luc Hudsyn, Jean Kockerols and Leon Lemmens were appointed Feb. 22, CNA reports.
Archbishop Leonard was appointed in Jan. 2010 in part in response to the scandals, which occurred under Cardinal Godfried Danneels, now retired.
Father Tommy Scholtes, S.J., spokesman for the Belgian bishops, told CNA that having a number of auxiliary bishops is â€œnormalâ€ for the archdiocese.
â€œI think this is good news for everybody,â€ he said of the appointments, adding that he didnâ€™t anticipate any problems. â€œI havenâ€™t heard anything, either yesterday or today.â€
