Thank you to all who attended our Lenten Spiritual Talk: The Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Father Bill Atkinson, O.S.A.
This year’s speaker was Father Michael F. Di Gregorio, O.S.A., Prior Provincial of the Province of St. Thomas of Villanova. Father Di Gregorio spoke about Delaware County local Father Bill Atkinson, O.S.A., the first quadriplegic to be ordained to the priesthood. After his ordination in 1974, Father Atkinson went on to live a life of service and sacrifice, teaching for nearly 30 years at Msgr. Bonner High School. Father Di Gregorio shared insights into Father Atkinson’s extraordinary life and explained the movement promoting the beatification and canonization of this local priest.
