Parish grateful for archbishop’s visit
March 21st, 2016
By St. Mary Star of the Sea Men’s Club

The St. Mary Star of the Sea’s Men’s Club in Sausalito invited Archbishop Cordileone on March 10 to our parish. We were overjoyed when he happily accepted our invitation. The event included a reception to allow the archbishop to personally meet our parishioners one-on-one, a talk and a question period. We couldn’t have been more pleased with how welcoming and outgoing the archbishop was. It was a great event for our parish and gave the archbishop the opportunity to meet our devoted parishioners.

The archbishop’s talk was centered around the joys, challenges and frustrations he faces on a day-to-day basis as archbishop of the diverse Archdiocese of San Francisco. He opened his calendar and described his activities every minute of each day for the entire week. We were amazed but not surprised that he was involved in committees, meetings, Masses, events with the public and dealing with parish issues when he wasn’t taking a break to pray. His activities were nonstop for every day of the week.

The questions that were asked were collected from our parishioners. They covered topics as diverse as what can be done to increase vocations and attendance to what he does to have fun. All of the answers were candid, sometimes very serious and sometimes very humorous.

The Men’s Club would like to sincerely thank the archbishop for taking the time and effort to meet with our parishioners and make his position as archbishop something that makes his activities real and important to us all. We also want to thank our pastor, Father Michael Quinn, for allowing us to invite the archbishop to our parish and the many parishioners that braved a cold and rainy night to attend the event.
