Thanking the auxiliaries

April 24, 2015
Rosemary K. Ring

Let us give thanks to our two stalwart auxiliary bishops, Most Rev. Robert McElroy and Most Rev. William Justice, who have served us constantly, faithfully and with cheerful hearts, and a sense of humor as they administered the sacrament of confirmation throughout our 90 parishes in addition to numerous social events and official engagements.

Remembering also their efforts to meet personally with victims of sexual abuse by priests and hear their stories face-to-face setting a good example for other dioceses in the healing process in response to the pedophile scandals.

I wish Bishop McElroy god speed as he begins to lead the Diocese of San Diego and hope that the more salubrious climate there will preserve his health for a long time so his talents and capability can become as big an asset to that area as they have been to our archdiocese. We say to him au revoir, not goodbye.
