To: Venerable Hierarchs, All Reverend Clergy, Archdiocesan Trustees, Parish Councils, and Faithful of our Archdiocese

Greetings and Blessings in the Name of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ!

This letter serves as the official notice of our intention to ask the delegates to the upcoming 50th Archdiocese Convention in Chicago, Illinois to cast their ballots for the nomination of candidates to fill the positions of two Auxiliary Bishops.

You will find attached a list of the names and biographies of the candidates for the office of Auxiliary Bishop.  Each delegate will vote for two candidates, and the results of this voting will be submitted to the Archdiocesan Synod who will elect the two new bishops.

Praying that our Lord will bless your preparations, and your travel to Chicago, I remain

Your father in Christ,

Metropolitan PHILIP
