Bishop Etienne says he ‘will be at home’ as new Anchorage Archbishop

In an Oct. 11 blog post Wyoming Bishop Paul Etienne said he “will be at home” as the new Archbishop of Anchorage. Slated to be installed as archbishop on Nov. 9, he wrote that he was thankful to retiring Anchorage Archbishop Roger Schwietz for his “warm welcome and hospitality” during Bishop Etienne’s two day visit, Oct. 4-5, to his future archdiocese.

He said Archbishop Schwietz “exudes calm while at the same time reassuring me about the future.”

“I am so grateful he is going to remain in residence now that he is able to step down from his episcopal responsibilities and enjoy once again being a ‘parish priest,'” Bishop Etienne wrote. “I look forward to enjoying his fraternity and friendship.”
