More Countdown

In advance of his Thursday installation in Washington, Donald Wuerl formally arrived in his new see yesterday and was greeted by his predecessor at Reagan National as the archbishop-elect stepped off a flight from Pittsburgh.

DC being DC, a press conference was immediately held in one of the concourses.

Wuerl will dine tonight with the priests of the archdiocese of Washington and spend tomorrow evening with his family and personal guests. The installation liturgy, which begins at 2pm local time (1800 GMT) on Thursday, will be televised in the District and Pittsburgh, and streamed on the web to the rest of the world.
