Today it was announced that we have a new archbishop. Bishop Gregory Aymond, currently of the diocese of Austin, has been named Archbishop of New Orleans. I encourage all to pray for him and we will welcome him with open arms. Our prayers and well wishes also go out to Archbishop Alfred Hughes who has served our archdiocese through many trials and tribulations. God Bless them both as they continue in the apostolic tradition of serving our Church with their gifts and sacrifices.
