    • Monsignor Robert O'Connor joins St. Peter's Parish

      We are proud to announce that Monsignor Robert O'Connor will be joining St. Peter’s Parish in September. Most recently he was pastor of the Church of the Blessed Sacrament in New York City’s Upper West Side where he has been since 1985. Born in Manhattan, Monsignor O’Connor was ordained along with our very own Fr. Arthur Leone in 1956 by Cardinal Spellman. In 2006 Pope St. John Paul II elevated him to the rank of Monsignor. We look forward to his wisdom and inspiration and we will do our best to make him feel right at home.
