To the Catholic Sentinel:
My Brothers and Sisters in the Archdiocese of Portland:
May God bless you as He has blessed us in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with His faithful Vicar, Archbishop Alexander Sample.
We have had the rare and exquisite privilege of receiving as our episcopal shepherd the same good priest who ministered to us for decades as curate, teacher, pastor and chancellor. We love him beyond expression; we will miss him dearly; we send him to you with our love and gratitude.
