GREEN BAY -- "I would hope that when people remember me, they say, 'He really wanted to be here, and he really loved us.' That was always my intention," said Bishop David A. Zubik. "I came here as a stranger and you welcomed me. I hope people know that I really tried so hard to be a part of the faith community. I had a lot of catching up to do, but this became my home."

Next Friday, Sept. 28, Bishop Zubik will officially become the 12th bishop of Pittsburgh. On Dec. 12, 2003, he was installed as the 11th bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay, an appointment he expected to serve until retirement at age 75.   Full story ...
