"SEDE VACANTE"

Currently our Diocese is listed as "SEDE VACANTE" (SEE VACANT)

Sede vacante in the canon law of the Catholic Church is the vacancy of the episcopal see of a particular church and especially that of the papacy. It is Latin for "[with] the seat being vacant", the seat in question being the bishop's throne of the particular church.
