Bishop Thomas A. Donato
It is with deep sadness that we must report the passing of The Most Reverend Thomas Donato, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Newark, and Regional Bishop of Hudson County. Born and raised in Jersey City, he loved his hometown, and all its people. Bishop Tom was a good friend to the OLC School, and was last here to bless our new playground at the grand opening in June. Over the years he has visited our school and said Mass in the OLC Church. He recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.
A soft-spoken, compassionate man, he will be missed by all who knew him. May he rest in peace.
