A Bishop for 25 Years and Counting

The Catholic Free Press
Interview by Margaret M. Russell | CFP

Twenty-five years ago Msgr. Robert J. McManus had to shoo away a young seminarian from his office in Our Lady of Providence Seminary and rush over to the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul to meet with Bishop Robert E. Mulvey, the bishop of Providence. He had been summoned by the bishop but didn’t know why.
Bishop McManus tells the story of what happened when he learned of his appointment by Pope John Paul II as if it was yesterday.
