Archbishop Carlson to Receive Pallium Monday

His Grace Archbishop Carlson will receive the pallium from the hands of the Holy Father in Rome on Monday, June 29, the Feast of SS. Peter and Paul. The St. Louis Review has a webpage dedicated to this important event, and EWTN will provide live TV coverage.

The pallium, made of lamb's wool, is given as a sign of pastoral authority to Metropolitan Archbishops.

From the Review's pallium page:

Reception of the Pallium - Archbishop Robert J. Carlson

On Monday, June 29 (the feast day of Saints Peter and Paul), Archbishop Robert J. Carlson will receive the pallium (a circular stole made of lamb's wool, symbolizing his role as a true 'shepherd' of the Archdiocese) from Pope Benedict XVI in Rome.

Many other new Archbishops will be receiving the pallium along with Archbishop Carlson, including St. Louis natives Archbishop Timothy Dolan and Archbishop George Lucas.


Live Television Coverage

EWTN will show the Pallium Mass at 3:00 a.m. CDT. on-air and online, and will rebroadcast the Pallium Mass at 10:00 a.m. CDT. (All on Monday the 29th).

Do you love the St. Louis connection?
We know about His Grace Archbishop Carlson and St. Louis natives Archbishop Timothy Dolan and Archbishop George Lucas, and Most Reverend Gregory M. Aymond, Archbishop of New Orleans who will preside at St. Louis Cathedral! What about Abp. Vigneron? Can we make a connection there?
