Just as with Bishop Ramirez in 1982, Bishop Oscar Cantú first met with the priests of the diocese at Holy Cross Retreat Center. We were happy to host the gathering when he could speak of his initial priorities–vocation promotion and collaboration with the priests, and respond to questions from the clergy. Holy Cross then provided a meal for everyone and a brief tour of the new friary under construction for those who had time. May the Lord bless Bishop Cantú with many years of compassionate and visionary ministry here.
