More on Archbishop Cordileone

Catholic San Francisco is reporting that His Excellency's installation Mass, as the ninth Archbishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, will be celebrated on October 4, the Feast of St. Francis.

Our good outgoing Archbishop George Niederauer noted that Archbishop Cordileone "has many ties to the Church in San Francisco; indeed, his father was born here. In recent years, as we have served as brother bishops in the Bay Area and the Province of San Francisco, I have come to know him as an energetic, hard-working, prayerful and faith-filled shepherd to his people."

That's right--his dad was baptized at Saints Peter and Paul Church. Here's a nice picture of His Excellency with his brother Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento at the Walk for Life West Coast a couple of years back. His Excellency listens will Bishop Soto makes a point to EWTN's "Life on the Rock" audience:

And here's His Excellency speaking at the San Francisco Stand Up For Religious Freedom rally on March 23, 2012:
