Vol. 8 | No. 6 | March 24, 2023

On the cover: Bishop David G. O’Connell of Los Angeles at his installation Mass as auxiliary bishop at the Chapel of the Annunciation in San Gabriel in November 2015. In this special issue of Angelus, we pay tribute to a beloved bishop and courageous missionary who won hearts and souls for Jesus Christ wherever he went. Our team coverage begins on Page 10 with a chronicle of LA’s three-day farewell to its beloved ‘Bishop Dave,’ and later, on Page 16, stories and perspectives from his closest loved ones about his vocation and ties to his homeland.
