Thanks for visiting prison

To the Catholic Sentinel:

A heartfelt thank you to Archbishop Alexander Sample for going to the Oregon State Penitentiary to celebrate Mass and bring the sacraments of Holy Communion and confirmation to Gary Haugen.

Thanks also to the Catholic Sentinel for its beautiful coverage of the event.

Gary called me that same afternoon and I could hear the joy in his voice.

“I did it. The Holy Spirit came.”

Gary was still weeping, humbled by what had just happened to him.

I, too, am overwhelmed with joy.

Yvonne Braun, Milwaukie
