“That’s about as official as it gets,” said Baltimore Archbishop William E. Lori after Sulpician Father Phillip J. Brown signed a profession of faith and oath of fidelity to church teaching Oct. 6.

“I feel your support every day and it is deeply appreciated,” Father Brown told the archbishop after the Mass.
