Bishop Ordinary of the Buffalo-Pittsburg Diocese 1990-2012
Bishop Protector the Nordic Catholic Church 1999-2011
On Friday January 19th, after nine months of declining health, the Right Rev. Thaddeus Peplowski, died at the age of 81. Bishop Thaddeus’ ecclesiastical life was as spiritually rich and wide-ranging as the bishop himself. He leaves behind a strong legacy from his lifelong charismatic and highly targeted leadership.
After nine years of service as assistant pastor at the Holy Mother of the Rosary Cathedral in Buffalo, he was assigned to other parishes in the widespread Buffalo-Pittsburg diocese and for some time also as missionary priest in Canada. When he returned to the Buffalo area in 1990, it was as Bishop of the PNCC’s Buffalo-Pittsburgh Diocese. During his term in office Bishop Thaddeus organised twelve new parishes including the purchase of two church buildings. Read more.
