TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Catholic Diocese of Tucson has scheduled a news conference for Tuesday morning.

The Diocese did not give a reason for the event, but it could be to announce a new bishop.

The event is set for 9 a.m. at the Diocese of Tucson Pastoral Center on East Broadway. Tucson News Now's Bud Foster will be there and you can follow him on Twitter to be the first to find out.

Bishop Gerald Kicanas resigned last year on his 75th birthday, the milestone set by the church for bishops to resign their leadership role.

At that time, Diocese spokeswoman Steff Koenemen said Kicanas would continue to lead the diocese until his successor was named and that it could take months, even up to a year.

    Ruby Torres always thought about having kids. So when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 she decided to undergo in vitro fertilization. "I wanted to one day become a mom," Torres said. "I wasn't sure what was going to happen in my future so I wanted to ensure I had that option and opportunity." Doctors used her eggs and her then-fiance's sperm to form seven embryos, but by the time she was medically cleared to try to get pregnant, they were divorcing.
