What a week for the team, especially Archbishop Jackels as he was officially installed as the 10th Archbishop of DBQ. But Bishops Nickless & Malloy did their share as well. Bishop Morlino had the week off.
Next week Bishop Jackels will have the week off to rest up from this past week’s excitement.

As I said earlier, last week was a big week here in Dubuque as Archbishop Jackels begins his time as our Chief Shepherd. I got a chance to talk a few minutes with Archbishop Jackels after Vespers on 29 May. Didn’t have much time to talk as there were others who wanted to meet him. But I did find out a couple of interesting but unknown facts about his time as a priest in Lincoln under Bishop Brustkewitz who was on my team the 1st season. Unfortunately, I was not able to talk with Bishop Nickless.
I did get my picture taken with Archbishop Jackels at the post Vespers reception. He was no longer wearing his Mitre, but he still was wearing his cope he had on during Vespers. As you can see, he was showing everyone how proud he is to be a part of the Fighting Saints. I am sure he will continue to perform well now that he is here in Dubuque & we will see how much he learned from Bishop Brustkewitz put into practice.
