A more Formal way to open a greeting in a letter other than "Dear ____" ?
Basically I'm supposed to be writing a letter to my bishop for my confirmation class and blah blah but that's another story. The point is I need to figure out how to address him without using the word "dear" in the beginning. I thought it would be simple but I just realized how I've never really seen it done any other way. I have his name so that's not a problem but what would you recommend?
