Monsignor Thomas Hadden

Interview with Msgr. Hadden

Monsignor Thomas Hadden was ordained to the priesthood on December 20, 1958. His experiences as a Catholic priest, in what had been a predominately Protestant state, are interesting, but being a black priest provides him with even more stories to share. In 2004, he shared his memories on Catholic Perspective, the diocesan television program.
