Archbishop Vlazny and Bishop Steiner to Retire in 2012

  • Archbishop Vlazny and Bishop Steiner will be retiring in early to mid 2012.
They are sending in their letters of impending retirement to Rome. We wish them well and thank them for their sacrifices.
  • With the 2011 USCCB fall meeting in session our two Archbishops:one known and one unknown are in Baltimore, Maryland from November 14-16.
We pray for our new Archbishop, whoever he is, and know that our new shepherd will be the Lord's Will for Western Oregon.

This is exciting. All I ask is someone NOT from Chicago.

There is no guarantee the Vatican will accept his retirement. He could be kept on here for several more years.

Also, his birthday is Feb. 22, not Feb. 12 as stated elsewhere in this blog.
