Barbecue with Bishop Emeritus Skylstad
Where is the Community? (A la “Where’s the beef?”)
Bishop Emeritus William Skylstad
Though the World Wide Web has united us in ways we have never thought possible before, we are now more isolated than ever. Come hear how the phenomenon of technology and so much more contribute to lonliness today, and what we can do about it!
Bishop William Skylstad
Born in 1934, Bishop William Skylstad was ordained a priest of Spokane on May 21, 1960. He was educated for the priesthood at the Pontifical College Josephinum, and later attended Washington State University.
