Archbishop-elect’s sister provides glimpse of family life

When Archbishop-elect Robert J. Carlson’s sister learned that he was being appointed as St. Louis’ next archbishop, several things immediately flashed through her mind.

While she’s never visited St. Louis, Cathy Percival of Bloomington, Minn., in a recent interview with the Review, seemed very much in tune with what’s going on in the Gateway City.

“I’m kind of the sports nut in the family, so I thought, ‘Oh yeah, St. Louis Cardinals,’” said the 60-year-old social worker. “There’s the Arch, and wasn’t the women’s (NCAA) Final Four just there?”

Of course, she also couldn’t forget some recent big news about one of St. Louis’ own: Archbishop Timothy Dolan, who was just installed as head of the Archdiocese of New York.
