That’s our Bishop! We love him and God is doing great things through him here in the heart of North Carolina!!

Bishop Michael Burbidge was installed in the Diocese of Raleigh in 2006 – the very year that I began my journey “home” in the Catholic Church.

I’ve had the privilege of meeting His Excellency twice now. The first time was the Ignited By Truth Catholic Conference in Raleigh in early 2007 prior to my confirmation. Thankfully, I was in his line at Mass and was able to receive the blessing directly from him!

The second time we met was at a men’s prayer breakfast at my current Parish. Bishop Michael never touched his breakfast because he was too busy greeting the men and listening intently to many personal stories, etc.

Along with many Priests and lay people, this humble shepherd is part of a great move of orthodoxy, holiness and love in our Diocese. Please pray for him as we all pray for more men like him to answer the vocational call to the Priesthood.
