New Oregon auxiliary bishop thanks people for inspiring his ministry

 | 

The Portland archdiocese's new auxiliary bishop, the first in 36 years, credited the people of the diocese for building his faith and inspiring his work during his episcopal ordination.

"I didn't get here on my own," Bishop Peter Smith told the congregation, which filled St. Mary's Cathedral in Portland to overflowing for a Mass that lasted two and a half hours Tuesday. "I got here because of all of you and many more besides."
