A Thank You from Archbishop Emeritus James M. Hayes:

archbishophayesDear Friends,
I have been overwhelmed by the many greetings, acknowledgements, and celebrations in honor of the Golden Anniversary of my Episcopal Ordination. The experience has been both humbling and wonderful! It is hard for me to put into words how much the response to my anniversary has meant to me. I am deeply touched by the kindness, appreciation, and generosity expressed in so many ways.
As I reflect on my many years of ministry I consider it one of the greatest blessings of my life to have had the opportunity in so many ways to be with people
