A Mass of celebration in honor of Msgr. Kevin O’Neill was held in Queen of Martyrs Church in Cheektowaga on May 28. After nine years of service, Msgr. O’Neill is retiring from his role of canonical administrator at Mary Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School at the end of the current school year.
Msgr. O’Neill, who was ordained in 1961, has dedicated much of his life to Catholic education. In January of this year, he received the Diocese of Buffalo’s Outstanding Achievement Award at the Celebration of Catholic Education gala held at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.
