I loved him! He was amazing with the children. He would come to where I go to church and say do you know what my name is, my name is Bishop Foley....it rhymes with holy. Such a sweet soul! He will surly be missed!
I remember alter serving for him,and doing funeral masses and confirmations.
Wonderful and holy man!
Him and I used to cut up when we would see each other I remember when I came into the church at confirmation I told him as I walked up to him I'm going to like you already we're the same height he started laughing and I started laughing and we always remembered that
May He Rest In Peace......AMEN!
May his Soul Rest In Peace.
Loved and respected Bishop Foley RIP
I was saddened to learn of Bishop Foley's death. He was a humble man of God. Always jovial, caring, willing to help, down to earth. If it were not for his vision and direction, I am fairly certain that, following Fr, Igoe's death, St. Joseph parish in Ensley would surely have been closed many years ago; instead, we are a vibrant active parish once again. Thank you, Bishop Foley, rest in peace, your work here is done!
We lost a great spiritual leader Bishop Foley gained a heavenly parish next to our Blessed Mother in the presence of Our Father. His Son Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit

Bishop Foley is an exemplary and holy priest. I appreciate all that he did for Catholic education in the Diocese.
I am very sorry to know this. I had several encounters with him when I was Director of Hispanic Ministry in Knoxville 1988-94, always positive and pleasant. St. Joseph, pray for him!
Jim and I are so sad to hear this. We will hold him up in prayer for the wonderful priest he is.

What is the history of Monk Bread? We are digging into our family history and we know Abbot Benedict Menges was an uncle to our Grandfather who came from Germany. He went and visited the Abbey when he came to the United States and later became a baker in Colorado. I am coming to visit end of May, first of June. Would like to see more of the history of St. Bernard's Abbey!
