At the age of 73, Bishop Kenneth Angell of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington is nearing retirement. At 75, Angell will be required to submit his resignation to the pope. Recently, in a special two-part interview with VPR’s Steve Zind, Bishop Angell talked about his life and the challenges faced by the Diocese in Vermont.
Today, in the second of two parts, the bishop reflects on his career and talks about retirement. Angell was ordained in 1956 and began his career as a parish priest in Jamestown and in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
