Bishop Emil Wcela | Statement from Bishop John O. Barres

We give thanks to Almighty God for the life and priesthood of Bishop Emil Wcela. A humble man, fine Scripture scholar, faithful pastor, and dedicated bishop, he served the people of the Diocese of Rockville Centre for over 65 years in our parishes, the work of priestly formation as professor and Seminary Rector, and as Vicar of the Eastern Vicariate. His passion for the Word of God inspired generations and helped many to know the love and mercy of God. May his soul rest in peace.
