for the Youth of the
Archdiocese of Saint Louis



"I'm Archbishop Robert Carlson, the new Archbishop for the Archdiocese of Saint Louis. I want you to know that I am delighted to be here, and I look forward to meeting the young Church.

You know, these are challenging times for everybody in our nation, but in a special way for you as you grow and you learn about the world around you. And I can assure you that one of the things which is important to me is that as you develop as a young woman of God, a young man of God, that you know Jesus Christ well.

I hope that we can open up the word of God to you. I hope that we can share the sacraments. And I look forward to meeting as many of you personally as I possibly can. God bless you all!"
