A preliminary procession has begun at the installation of Archbishop Alexander Sample — Knights of Columbus, family, special guests. Worshipers are still filing into the bleachers. The University of Portland sports dome is packed, with nowhere else left to sit. This on a Tuesday at 2 p.m. in a sports arena that holds thousands.

The opening song has begun a few minutes before 2 p.m.— slowly, servers bearing cross, incense and book of Gospels has appeared. Now come representatives of various faiths, including a rabbi and a Muslim imam.

A long line of clergy now, hundreds, has come to a halt. Latin hymns make up the prelude, but many songs during Mass will be in English.
