Giving thanks — Bishop W. Francis Malooly through the years: 2018 photo gallery

On March 17, 2018, Bishop Malooly instituted four of our seminarians to the Ministry of Lector and Acolyte at Saint Mary's Seminary and University in Baltimore, Md. To Lector: Adam Bauer, John Enemuo, and Brennan Ferris. To Acolyte: Michael Preston. Alongside the bishop, from left, are Adam Bauer, Michael Preston, John Enemuo and Brennan Ferris. Back row, from left, are seminarian Craig Kursinsky, Fathers Norman Carroll, Jim Kirk and Joseph McQuaide.

Bishop Malooly celebrated his 75th birthday Jan. 18 and — as required by canon law — submitted his resignation to Pope Francis. The pope has not yet accepted it.

As we approach Thanksgiving, we prayerfully give thanks for the tenure of Bishop Malooly. A special, printed “Giving thanks” section is scheduled to appear with the regular edition of The Dialog published Nov. 22.

Included in our “Through the years” coverage is the digital year-by-year look back at Bishop Malooly’s time in the Diocese of Wilmington.
