Archbishop Wuerl Offers Prayers to Pittsburgh Mayor Bob O’Connor

July 10, 2006

Upon hearing the news that Pittsburgh Mayor Bob O’Connor has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl of Washington offered his prayers for the Mayor and his family:

“I was very distressed to learn of the physical condition of Mayor – and my good friend – Bob O’Connor and I want to assure him, his wife Judy, and their sons Fr. Terry and Cory, of my prayers and support. I feel very close to them and particularly to Bob, even though I am not able to be with them in Pittsburgh.”

Mayor O’Connor attended the June 22 installation of Archbishop Wuerl in Washington. The Archbishop had served as Bishop of Pittsburgh for 18 years before Pope Benedict XVI named him to head the Archdiocese of Washington.
