On June 15, 1979, Bishop Michael H. Kenny was installed as the third Bishop of Juneau. Under his inspirational leadership, the Church of Southeast Alaska continued to grow and flourish. Teams of priests and sisters based in the larger towns traveled to the smaller communities to support small groups of Catholics, as well as those of other faiths. The people of Saint John by the Sea Parish on Prince of Wales Island built a church in the village of Klawock. The Native designs incorporated in this church reflected Bishop Kenny's desire to reach out to all the peoples of Southeast Alaska, whether Catholic or not. His bold stands in support of peace and justice were respected even by those who did not agree with him. When he died suddenly on a trip to Jordan on February 19, 1995, he was deeply mourned by people of all faiths and beliefs.
