Francis Kenrick

Francis Patrick Kenrick was an Irish-born prelate of the Roman Catholic Church who served as the third Bishop of the Diocese of Philadelphia and the sixth Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Francis Kenrick was born in Dublin to Jane Kenrick, his younger brother, Peter Richard Kenrick, would become the first Archbishop of St. Louis, his uncle was the pastor of St. Nicholas of Myra Church in Dublin, took an active role in his education. At the age of eighteen, he was selected to study at the Pontifical Urbaniana University in Rome, where he became a distinguished student, he was ordained to the priesthood by Archbishop Candido Maria Frattini on 7 April 1821. Shortly after his ordination, Kenrick accepted an invitation from Bishop Benedict Joseph Flaget, S. S. to join the Diocese of Kentucky, in the United States. He held the chair of theology at St. Thomas Seminary for nine years, in addition to teaching Greek and history at St. Joseph's College. Apart from his academic duties, he engaged in missionary work.

He earned a reputation as an eloquent preacher and effective apologist, was a recognized theologian and scripture scholar. Kenrick was made private secretary to Flaget, whom he accompanied to the First Provincial Council of Baltimore in 1829 as his personal theologian, he served as an assistant secretary of the Council. On 25 February 1830, Kenrick was appointed Coadjutor Bishop of Philadelphia, Titular Bishop of Arath by Pope Pius VIII, he received his episcopal consecration on the following 6 June from Flaget, with Bishops Henry Conwell and John Baptist Mary David, S. S. serving as co-consecrators, in Bardstown. Kenrick assumed full administrative powers from the aged Bishop Conwell, whose tenure had been plagued by a public feud with a schismatic priest named William Hogan. Upon his arrival, he became engaged in the long-running dispute between episcopal authority and the lay trustees of St. Mary's Church; the trustees conceded their struggle for power after Kenrick placed St. Mary's Cathedral under interdict.

He placed all church property in the name of the bishop instead of those of the trustees. In 1832, Kenrick founded St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, located at his personal residence; that same year an outbreak of cholera took place in Philadelphia. The Committee of the Almshouse known as Philadelphia General Hospital, asked Bishop Kenrick if he could request additional help from the Sisters of Charity to serve as nurses. Father Michael Hurley, pastor of St. Augustine's Church turned it into a makeshift hospital under the supervision of Dr. Oliver H. Taylor. Kenrick led the local Catholic sisters in ministering to the sick. Kenrick petitioned the Holy See to separate Western Pennsylvania into a new diocese, the Diocese of Pittsburgh was established in 1836. Kenrick succeeded Conwell as the third Bishop of Philadelphia upon the latter's death on 22 April 1842; as Bishop, Kenrick expressed public concern over the fact that Catholics in Philadelphia were forced to participate in Protestant religious instruction in the public schools.

This dispute led to the 1844 Philadelphia Nativist Riots, a series of riots resulting from increasing anti-Catholic sentiment at the growing population of Irish Catholic immigrants. Although most of the patients cared for by the Sisters at St. Augustine were listed as non-Catholic, the church was burned to the ground during the riots. Throughout the violence, Kenrick encouraged Catholics "to follow peace and have charity." He closed all Catholic churches and ordered the suspension of all Masses until the riots were brought to a halt by military force. Following those Riots, Kenrick ended his advocacy for changes in the religious instruction of public schools and initiated the creation of a Parochial school system designed for Catholic students and run by the Church. Influenced by the work of his contemporary, an English priest named John Lingard, Kenrick published his own translation of the four Gospels in 1849. Between 1830 and 1850, the number of churches in the diocese grew from 22 to 92.

He began construction on the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul and oversaw the rebuilding of St. Michael and St. Augustine following the 1844 riots. Following the death of Archbishop Samuel Eccleston, S. S. Kenrick was named the sixth Archbishop of Baltimore, Maryland, by Pope Pius IX on 19 August 1851, his installation took place on the following 9 October. He presided over the First Plenary Council of Baltimore in 1852; as Archbishop of Baltimore, Kendrick expanded the Parochial School System beyond Philadelphia and help to make Catholic instruction the norm for Catholic children in America. Under his tenure, parochial schools were free for all students, were supported directly by the parishes. In 1854, he was invited by Pius IX to attend the promulgation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception in Rome. In 1858, the Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith, with the approval of Pius IX, conferred a "prerogative of place" on the Archbishop of Baltimore over all archbishops and bishops in the United States, regardless of seniority in promotion or ordination.

In his years, Archbishop Kenrick struggled to reduce tensions between Catholics a
