Father Connor To Appear On EWTN

Father Charles P. Connor, a priest of the Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania, currently studying at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family in Washington, D.C., will be the guest of Father Mitch Pacwa, S.J., on EWTN Live, Wednesday, May 20, at 8 p.m. He will discuss “The Spiritual Legacy of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen,” a new TV series he is producing for EWTN, the global Catholic network. The series will present Archbishop Sheen's legacy to the Church through his writings. Each episode will discuss a different spiritual theme from Sheen's work, “all as relevant to today's world as they were in the decades in which they were written.”

A native of Carbondale, Father Connor is the son of Joseph N. Connor, Crystal Lake, and the late Alice Robinson Connor. Ordained to the priesthood for the diocese in 1990, Father Connor is former rector of St. Peter’s Cathedral, former pastor of St. John the Evangelist in Susquehanna and St. Rose of Lima Parish, Carbondale, and assistant pastor at St. Patrick’s Church, Scranton. He is a historian for the Diocese of Scranton.

Father Connor graduated from the University of Scranton, where he also received his Master's Degree in United States History. In 1979, he received his PhD. in United States History from Fordham University, New York City. He holds a Ph.B. in Philosophy from the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, and an S.T.B. and M.A. in Theology from the Gregorian and Angelicum Universities in Rome, where he received his priestly formation at the North American College.
