Also present will be Bishop Edward J. Slattery of the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma; Bishop Bishop James C. Timlin, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Scranton; Bishop Robert W. Finn of the Diocese of Kansas City ~ St. Joseph; Abbot Philip Anderson, OSB, of Our Lady of the Annunciation Monastery and Father John Berg, Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter.

This event will happen this Wednesday, March 3rd, and will be broadcast live on EWTN beginning at 11:00am EST. The NLM's own Gregory DiPippo will also be there to provide some local coverage of this event.

Further to this, the NLM is very pleased to be able present a preview to our readership of the chapel itself.
