Archbishop Wester of Santa Fe

On Thursday, June 4, the Most Rev. John C. Wester, formerly Bishop of Salt Lake City, Utah and prior to that Auxiliary Bishop of San Francisco, will be installed as the Twelfth Archbishop of Santa Fe, New Mexico. His personal arms, assumed at the time of his episcopal ordination in San Francisco, are now marshaled to those of the venerable Archdiocese of Santa Fe the arms of which allude to both Spain and to the titular patron of its cathedral church: St. Francis of Assisi.

The artwork for the coat of arms (below) is by Deacon Paul Sullivan.
