Five of service to the people of San Antonio came to an end yesterday in an emotional ceremony for Archbishop Jose Gomez.  The Archbishop gave his final mass at Saint Mark's the Evangelist Church on the North west side.

Just recently the Archbishop was elevated by the Pope to replace Cardinal Roger Mahoney in Los Angeles.  All the priests and deacons of the Archdiocese of San Antonio were invited to the ceremony.

The mass lasted a couple of hours and included a presentation of special gifts to Archbishop Gomez.

The Archbishop will arrive in Los Angeles in just over a week.
