A survey of more than 3,000 Los Angeles area pastoral leaders and Synod delegates shows that 68 percent rated Los Angeles archbishop Cardinal Roger Mahony's ministry as "good" or "excellent," according to the lead story in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles's newspaper. Cardinal Mahony worked directly with the contractors to develop the evaluation questionnaire.
