Editor’s Note: The following reflection is taken from Bishop Berg’s homily at the solemn vespers on the occasion of the commencement of the 75th Anniversary of the Diocese, Sunday, February 26, 2017.
We are here to begin a celebration of 75 years of grace and blessing. A year of reflection, celebration and prayer begins this evening.
Our first Bishop, Joseph Clement Willging, was installed in this chair, in this Cathedral of the Sacred Heart 75 years ago this week.
