    It is a pleasure to follow Anchorage diocese activities through the ANCHOR and this news confirms a hunch that I had expressed to my husband about a year ago. No surprise here in Seattle that the youth of the diocese will enjoy his gifts as the shepherd of the Pacific Northwest flock. We were in Fairbanks for our granddaughter’s 12th birthday this last week traveling through Ted Stevens Airport Sunday morning and once again I thought of your young archbishop and all he has seen in his years of service to the church. Welcome to Seattle Archbishop Etienne!
