It is with tremendous joy that Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary celebrates the ordination of Most Rev. Roy E. Campbell Jr. ’07 to the Order of Bishop! Bishop Campbell is an Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Washington D.C.

The Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary community was honored to welcome to Weston the Rector of our brother seminary, Saint John’s Seminary in Brighton, MA, on March 20th, the Feast of St. Joseph. Monsignor James P. Moroney celebrated Mass with seminarians where in his homily he highlighted the virtue of obedience while speaking of St. Joseph as a role model. We thank Monsignor Moroney for taking the time to pray with us, and for sharing his joyfulness, his friendship and his thoughtful words on a wonderful man, St. Joseph.
