After Archbishop Wilton Gregory was announced as the new archbishop of Washington, one of the first things he did was visit St. Anthony Catholic School in Washington to meet the students there. Since he was installed as archbishop at the end of the 2018-2019 school year, students in Archdiocese of Washington Catholic schools and parishes were invited to draw self-portraits to introduce themselves to their new shepherd.
In response to the students' introductions, Archbishop Gregory had a message of his own:
“My Dear Young Friends, thanks so much for your kind messages of welcome and those terrific pictures of yourselves. I look forward to visiting with many of you at your schools this coming year. I pray that you and your families will have a wonderful summer filled with lots of fun things to see and do. Please tell your parents and grandparents that the Archbishop thinks that they have wonderful youngsters!”
