I had the pleasure of listening to Bishop McFadden speak at my son's confirmation a few years back. What a wonderful and engaging man, a true disciple of Christ. Condolences to his family one can only imagine their loss.

May his soul rest in the Risen Lord.
I remember Joe when I was a college seminarian at St. Charles Seminary (Overbrook) in the early 1980's. As he served Cardinal Krol as Priest/Secretary, Joe always took the time and effort to reach out to me and offer me encouragement and perseverance. He had a gentle and humble soul who loved the Lord and His ministry. Requiescat in pace.

My brother Kenny knew Bishop McFadden from college and also worked at West Catholic and Cardinal O'Hara with him. I remember Kenny smiling when the "Bishop's" name was mentioned in a story. He was a good friend to Kenny and we were honored when Bishop McFadden said the funeral mass for my dear brother.
I find comfort knowing they are together now and sharing some funny stories.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I was a teacher and administrator at West Catholic when a young man came to the school. First as a JV basketball coach when Billy Hoy came aboard as the varsity coach. Before long Joe took on coaching JV Baseball as well and when he graduated from St. Joes he became a teacher at the school. Within a couple of years he was both Athletic Director and varsity coach of his beloved basketball. He answered every need that came his way… as he did later when he entered the seminary and was ordained. He served and made all he encountered better people… and was outstanding in all he did. While he will be missed we are all better people for having encountered him on our own life journey.
