Letter from Archbishop Etienne  
On Wednesday, October 7, the Archdiocese of Seattle will join in
solidarity with Archbishop Gomez, president of the USCCB,
to celebrate the memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary.

This national prayer event is designed to unite Catholics across
the country in a moment of prayer for America at this time when there
is so much unrest and uncertainty.
