Heading east...

For the next few days I'll be in Greenville, S.C., where I'll be giving the commencement address at St. Joseph's Catholic School. The Chaplain, Fr. Dwight Longenecker, was kind enough to invite me, and I'm looking forward to visiting this outstanding school

I'll be returning on Saturday afternoon, and then next week we'll have our own graduation exercises. Our first class of Seniors will be graduating, and we'll mark the event with a Mass and Banquet on Thursday evening, followed by Solemn Evensong and Commencement on Friday evening. Our Eighth Grade graduation will be on Saturday, with a Mass followed by Commencement.

We're very happy that our new auxiliary bishop, the Most Reverend Oscar Cantu, will be with us for the Mass and Banquet on Thursday.
