ecce sacerdos magnus


Bishop-Elect David O'Connell was just named Coadjutor Bishop to Trenton, NJ.  He was my canon law professor at Mary Immaculate Seminary (Northampton, PA) and preached at my first Mass at my diaconate parish (St. Gregory the Great, Lebanon, PA   A real gentleman, scholar and very orthodox and devout ,priest.  Many of us had hoped he would become the next Bishop of Harrisburg

During his tenure at CUA  a huge increase occurred in vocations to the priesthood and religious life from among the student body proliferated; Eucharistic Holy Hours on campus became commonplace. The crowning jem was the visit of His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, to Catholic University during Dave's tenure.  O'Connell put CATHOLIC back into the equation of CUA.
