CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Paul Etienne of Seattle is being criticized for the purchase of a $2.4 million residence on the city’s waterfront.

But when he first arrived in Seattle in 2019, Archbishop Etienne made a point of saying that he would not use the existing mansion traditionally occupied by the archbishop, but would “live a more simplified life.”
