As much of an influence on the world of technology and catholicism as I might like to think I have, this one cannot be attributed to me. I have yet to meet Bishop Kmiec (pronounced Kim-Ick) but from what I hear from those around me and others who have had experiences with him, I have nothing but good things to expect. “He’s an extremely down to earth kind of guy,” reports one Paulist Father who was able to share living space with the good Bishop several years ago. Others in town report the same story.

As the Bishop nears retirement along with his other brother Bishops in Western NY: Bishop Matt Clark of Rochester and Bishop Howard J. Hubbard of Albany.

  1. I sense Hayes' influence too!!

    Thanks for sharing this and yes – I do pray for our upstate bishops. They do near retirement, don't they? Bishop Clark is from Albany originally and our own Bishop Hubbard is has never left this diocese.

    We are blessed with Bishop Hubbard and I am sure that God will send an able servant to follow him, but those will be big shoes to follow.

    I love this diocese but I do wish we had more online presence. I do my best to support my corner of it, as you know!
