This week’s issue of The Criterion celebrates the life and legacy of Archbishop Emeritus Daniel M. Buechlein, who served for 19 years as the spiritual leader of the archdiocese. The archbishop emeritus died on Jan. 25 at the age of 79.

Because the printing deadline for The Criterion is on Tuesdays, the coverage of Archbishop Buechlein’s funeral Mass on Wednesday, Jan. 31, will be featured in the Feb. 9 issue. So will his internment at the cemetery of Saint Meinrad Archabbey in St. Meinrad on Thursday, Feb. 1.

Many of the newspaper’s regular features are also included in this issue, but some have been moved from their usual place to highlight Archbishop Buechlein’s legacy at the front of this edition. The calendar listing of events, programs and retreats in the archdiocese can be found on page 18 in this issue. †
