On July 30, Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., marks the 10th anniversary of his ordination to the episcopacy, less than two months after being named Coadjutor Bishop of the Diocese of Trenton. 

Bishop O’Connell continues his episcopal ministry and outreach to the clergy, religious and faithful of the four counties of Diocese of Trenton, striving to bear joyful witness to his episcopal motto "Ministrare non ministrari: to serve and not to be served."

In celebration of the decade that Bishop O’Connell has led the Diocese of Trenton, The Monitor has assembled this multimedia collection highlighting the last 10 years for our readers:

 

Bishop O'Connell opened every episode of Cristo Para Todos which appeared weekly on Philadelphia Telemundo and other outlets across the U.S. and internationally.

Bishop also shared his wisdom and experience with the audience of Cristo Para Todos about Catholic education on the episode focused on the topic.
