Fr. John O’Hara named Auxiliary Bishop of New York

It is our great joy to announce that our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has appointed three priests of the Archdiocese of New York to serve as Auxiliary Bishops to Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of New York. The announcement was made last Saturday in Rome and in Washington.
The three Bishops-elect are Msgr. John Jenik, currently the pastor of Our Lady of Refuge Parish in the Bronx, Bishop-elect Peter Byrne, currently the pastor of Saint Elizabeth Parish in Manhattan, and Bishop-elect John Joseph O’Hara, currently directing the archdiocesan planning process Making All Things New. He is the past pastor of Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus Parish on Staten Island. As you know, for the past 2 1/2 years, Bishop-elect O’Hara has resided here at Saint Agnes and has been assisting us with offering Masses, hearing Confessions, and much more.
The three new bishops will be ordained by Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral on Monday, August 4, 2014, the Feastday of Saint John Vianney, Patron Saint of Priests. Our congratulations and prayers to all three Bishops-elect. Ad Multos Annos! For more information visit the website: Catholic New York article.
