To the Congregation of Christ Our Hope, Dayton, Ohio,
On this very important day as you begin your new venture in starting a mission of the Diocese of the Central States and of Christ the King, I want you to know of my great joy that you are taking this step. God has blessed you with the ministry of Fr. Wayne, Bp. Royal, Bp. George, and I pray of my episcopal ministry to you. I pray that as God works through you to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to that neighborhood you will be an example to the rest of the diocese of the love and ministry of Jesus Himself and so a symbol of the growth of the church. I cannot be there with you, but I give you my blessing as your Bishop and Pastor. I look forward to visiting with you as soon as I can.
Yours in the Gospel,
Bp. Dan Morse
