Today, June 18, marks Bishop Robert J. Cunningham’s 75th birthday. This is the day on which canon law requires him to submit a letter of resignation to the Holy Father.

In advance of this momentous day, Bishop Cunningham sat for an interview with the Sun to offer a look back at his time as shepherd of the diocese and a look ahead at what the future may hold for the local Church and its yet-to-be-named eleventh bishop.

This afternoon, the Sun was lucky enough to tag along with the bishop as he put his letter in the mail.IMG 8200 225x300 - Bishop Cunningham celebrates 75th birthday

And earlier this morning, colleagues and friends gathered to celebrate the bishop, complete with bagpipe music, cake, and video greetings.
