Question When writing a letter to a Bishop or Archbishop..

Can someone please tell me what is the correct salutation for writing to your Bishop or Archbishop? Would it be..

"Your Eminence" or something else?

Thanks very much.. and sorry if I've put this in the wrong Forum. I wasn't sure where it would go.

Hey,

I think it would be correct to address a Bishop or Archbishop as His Excellency or The Most Reverend. His Eminence would be reserved for Cardinals.

P.S. I should have checked "Fisheaters" It's one of my favorite sites.

Your excellency is good, also your reverend. You can also address the bishop thru his name with its title.
