Letter from Archbishop Etienne.
With the bishops of Washington State, I request your help in presenting this year’s Virtual Cornerstone Catholic Conference taking place on October 30, 2021. As we seek to unite Catholics in supporting both life and justice issues, we hope that you will encourage your parishioners to attend this online event. We also ask each parish to consider making a contribution to the conference.
