The Archdiocese of Newark officially welcomed the newest member of its Episcopal family; Co-Adjutor Archbishop Bernard Hebda on November 5, 2014. Archbishop Hebda was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, and most recently served as Bishop in the diocese of Gaylord, Michigan.
Archbishop Hebda is no stranger to the work of Saint Paul’s Outreach. In fact, when members of SPO NJ had the opportunity to meet Archbishop Hebda, he shared with the team how he attended a Fan into Flame retreat given by Saint Paul’s Outreach at the North American College in Rome, and how fond he was of that particular retreat.
Our Missionaries-in-Residence are particularly excited to welcome Archbishop Hebda as he has taken up residence at Seton Hall University. He is living among the students and Missionaries-in-Residence in the residence halls. Many of our students and missionaries have already had the opportunity to meet and spend time with Archbishop Hebda!
