Bishop William (Bill) Wack,CSC  Bishop, Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee (

It was a great weekend of liturgies and rituals. We celebrated Confirmation in Crestview and Pensacola, the Rite of Election for our Catechumens, and then welcomed some of the candidates for full communion.

Good to see that my inspirational quote from St. Teresa is still on the mirror in my former rectory in Austin. The paper is a little worn, but that quote reminds me that everything is God’s work. What - or whom - should I fear?

I enjoyed my (quick) visit to St. Paul Catholic School today. The Kindergarteners were all excited about St. Patrick’s Day!

This afternoon we celebrated the Rite of Election (1st photo) and the welcoming of Candidates (2nd) at the co-Cathedral. God is good!

Visited Sacred Heart Hospital (Emerald Coast) for the first time today. Strange to see a photo of myself near the main entrance!

Day 2 of the priests’ retreat. Be assured of our prayers for you this week. Please pray for us!

I’m at St. John Vianney Seminary in Miami for some meetings. I spent the day with our seminarians yesterday, and this morning we celebrated Mass together - praying especially for the synod in Rome.

But I’m only 51 (and a half)! Is someone pranking me?

What an amazing day it was for our diocese! Our Celebrate Faith event was filled with inspiring speakers, good prayer, and a Mass of the Holy Spirit, in which we confirmed nearly 100 adults. God is good.

Meet Doug Martin (and his wife Amanda). I installed Doug as Lector and Acolyte in Dothan, AL, today. Doug, a former Episcopal priest, has been approved for ordination as a Catholic priest in our diocese (time and place TBD).

Thanks to the Knights and Ladies of St. Peter Claver for your presence at our annual celebration honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, I confirmed nearly 50 young people at St. Anne in Gulf Breeze. What a great celebration!
