Archbishop Brunett recovering

Archbishop Alex J. Brunett

As people in churches throughout the Diocese of Oakland have been remembering Archbishop Alex J. Brunett in their prayers, comes word from Seattle that the archbishop has returned to his home after spending more than a week in the hospital after suffering a stroke Sept. 12.

The retired archbishop of Seattle, who is 79, served as apostolic administrator in the Diocese of Oakland from Oct. 4, 2012 until the installation of Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, on May 25 of this year.

Greg Magnoni, director of communications for the Archdiocese of Seattle, said a fever sent the archbishop back to the hospital briefly, but he had since returned to his residence.

He described the archbishop as "very conversant" and said doctors were encouraged by some movement in the left leg and that "good elasticity" in the archbishop's left arm shows "good prospects, with therapy, to regain movement."

Magnoni described the archbishop's recovery as a long process, "measured in inches, not yards."

Cards and notes to the archbishop can be addressed to him at Archdiocese of Seattle, 710 Ninth Ave., Seattle, WA 98104.
