The Bishop has a connection to the late, great Dr. John Senior:
Bishop Conley, 57, is a convert to Catholicism; he was received into the Church at the University of Kansas as a student in John Senior’s Integrated Humanities Program, an innovative great books program that was ultimately suppressed by the university. Ordained a priest of the Diocese of Wichita in 1985, Father Conley worked for the Congregation for Bishops and served as a pastor before his 2008 appointment as auxiliary bishop. (Rorate Caeli)
