    While Sample offered some critical language in his pastoral letter, his implementing successor in Marquette has taken a gentler tack. Doerfler said his proposed Marquette hymnal will include about 300 pieces, ranging from traditional favorites such as "Holy God, We Praise Thy Name," Gregorian chant-style antiphons, and more contemporary pieces such as "Be Not Afraid."

    A friend living there says that the plan is still in the works to be implemented.
