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.

I was very sadden by Bishop Mc Fadden's passing I remember him when I ran as an EMT with Marple Ambulance , and we had calls at
O Hara HS , he was always there with the patient consoling and comforting them upon our arrival. God rest his soul, you just never know. He was a good and holy priest.

Dearest Bishop--
You taught many spiritual lessons while you lived, and for one last time taught us one in the way you died. No one knows the hour when or the circumstances under which Christ will knock on our door. We simply must be ready when he summons us. Thank you for reinforcing that lesson.
