Anniversary greetings from the Diocese of Boise, Idaho

by Bishop Michael P. Driscoll, Bishop of Boise

(From the May 2, 2002 edition of the Inland Register

It is my great pleasure to join the bishops of the Northwest and the United States in wishing Bishop William my sincerest congratulations on the occasion of his 25th anniversary of ordination to the episcopacy. I thank God for all of the many blessings that God has given him as a priest and bishop, and also for his response of "yes" to God in service to the Church.

Bishop Bill is a great model for all of us - bishops, priests, deacons, Religious and laity. He is dedicated to the service of God. He is unselfish in his time and commitment to others. He truly follows in the footsteps of Christ - a servant to all.

Bishop Bill is also a great personal friend, serving as one who is always available for consultation or a word of encouragement, looking for ways in which we can gather as members of Jesus Caritas for personal prayer and growth, and planning opportunities for a little rest and relaxation together as bishops.

The priests and people of his neighbor, the Diocese of Boise, offer our sincerest congratulations as he celebrates his silver jubilee and wish to Bishop William many, many more years of life, health, friendship and service together.
