(From the Aug. 19, 2010 edition of the Inland Register)

Bishop Cupich,

I look forward to your being my neighbor to the north, east and south!

As bishops of the two suffragan dioceses of the Archdiocese of Seattle, we will work together, as part of this ecclesiastical province, to build up the Kingdom here in the State of Washington. Together with our brother bishops in the States of Alaska, Oregon, Idaho and Montana (all together forming Region 12 of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) our voices will help shape the presence of the Lord in our nation.

Iím confident that your many gifts and talents will be a source of abundant blessings. Count on my prayers.

Bishop Skylstad,

Thank you for all we have shared as brother bishops, neighbors and friends here in Eastern Washingtonís dioceses of Yakima and Spokane. Because you are a proven national leader and exceptional spiritual guide, I doubt youíll have much leisure as bishop emeritus of Spokane!

Bishop Carlos Sevilla SJ, Diocese of Yakima
