Most Rev. James D. Conley, D.D., S.T.L.
In his 28 years as a priest, Bishop James D. Conley has served the Catholic Church in a wide variety of ways – as pastor, college campus chaplain, director of Respect Life ministries, theology instructor, Vatican official and bishop. In all of these tasks, he has seen his life as a priest as a call to service and complete surrender to “God’s providential hand.” For his episcopal motto, Bishop Conley, a convert to the Catholic faith, chose the same motto as the great 19th-century English convert, John Henry Cardinal Newman, “cor ad cor loquitur,” which means “heart speaks to heart.” On April 10, 2008, Pope Benedict XVI announced the appointment of Rev. Msgr. James D. Conley as auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Denver. As Auxiliary bishop, he assisted Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., in the pastoral care of the archdiocese. On September 14, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI appointed Bishop Conley as the bishop of the Lincoln Diocese in Nebraska. Bishop Conley was installed at the ninth Bishop of Lincoln on November 20, 2012 in the Cathedral of the Risen Christ in Lincoln.
