Monsignor James Matthew Sheehan, Judicial Vicar and Secretary for Canonical Affairs for the Archdiocese of Newark, passed away on August 28, 2011. He was 39 years of age.
Msgr. Sheehan received his JCL from Catholic University and has been an Active member of the Society since 2000. He was currently serving the Society on the Committee on Laity.
As the effects of Cancer set in, and while continuing treatment, it was Monsignor's wish to return home to our Residence at the Cathedral Basilica until the time of the Lord's Call. He died surrounded by a most loving and caring Family, and faithful Friends.
