Archbishop Brunett's 81st birthday
Archbishop Alex J. Brunett, apostolic administrator of the Oakland diocese in 2012-2013 and who suffered a stroke Sept. 12, 2013, says he misses the friendship and people of the diocese and hopes to one day make a return visit. Two friends from the Oakland diocese, Lu Bradford, in red jacket, and Merlie Pablico, on the archbishop's left, visited Archbishop Brunett Jan. 17 in Seattle for his 81st birthday party, attended by several long-time friends. He is lively and his speech has improved, she reports, while he continues physical therapy. Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, and Rev. Ray Sacca were also recent visitors to the archbishop, who led the Seattle archdiocese 1997-2010 until his retirement.
