Most Rev. Vincent D. Breen (1936-2003)

In your prayers today, please remember the repose of the soul of Bishop Breen.  Today is the sixth anniversary of his death.

The third Bishop of the Metuchen Diocese, he was the only one of our bishops to actually be ordained a Bishop in our Cathedral, back in September of 1997. And, of the four men who have served as Bishop of Metuchen, he is the only one who is deceased.

In May of 1998, Bishop Breen ordained me to the Priesthood.  In all, he ordained ten Priests during his tenure in Metuchen; at the time, we were known as the "Breenie Babies".
