Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio, archbishop of military services, visited MCAS Yuma March 17 through 19 to speak to Catholic Marines.
The visit was part of Broglio’s many scheduled visits to military bases throughout the U.S.
“I always try to visit myself or have one of my three bishops visit each base every year,” said Broglio, 60, and native of Cleveland. “I really like visiting Marine bases because you’re good to work with and seem to have a special bond with the chaplains.”
While here, Broglio gave the Sacrament of Conformation for those who were ready to receive it.
Over the course of his visits, Broglio will visit all five military branches.
