The Archdiocese of Philadelphia recently announced the retirement of Deacon William Bradley, Director of the Office for Black Catholics, effective June 30, 2017.
The Martin de Porres Foundation would also like to congratulation Deacon Bill, for his upcoming retirement. We applaud him for his dedicated years of service and achievements. After the many years of working together, we will try to adjust to the idea that he no longer works in the OBC. But, this is not the end of his career of inspiring, spiritually uplifting, and helping to develop leadership and Vocations for the Priesthood and the Deaconate within the African-American/Black Catholic Community.
Again, we send congratulations on a well-deserved retirement. Few have worked as hard as Deacon Bill. We believe, he will continue to enjoy and focus some of his energy into working with our Church and community.
