At Archbishop Alexander Sample's installation as Archbishop of Portland, Mary Jo Tully, chancellor of the archdiocese, showed the apostolic mandate from Pope Benedict to the college of consultors, priests who advise the archbishop. Then Archbishop Sample was escorted to the old archbishop's chair, or cathedra, where he sat. The crowd broke into applause and then stood.
As the choir sang "Ubi Caritas" — where charity and love are, God is there — representatives from various faith groups and Catholic religious communities came forward to welcome the tall, lanky churchman. The line is still working its way as each person shakes the archbishop's hand.
