              WELCOME TO REVEREND MONSIGNOR WILLIAM P. FAY

  (Mr. KILDEE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute.)
  Mr. KILDEE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to welcome our guest chaplain, 
Monsignor William P. Fay. Monsignor Fay was recently elected to serve 
as the General Secretary of the National Conference of Catholic 
Bishops, U.S. Catholic Conference. His 5-year term begins next 
February.
  He has served as Associate General Secretary of the conference since 
1995. In this capacity, Monsignor Fay has overseen the public policy 
work of the U.S. Catholic Conference. Monsignor Fay helped to 
coordinate the most recent visit of Pope John Paul II to the United 
States when the Holy Father traveled to St. Louis in January 1999.
  Monsignor Fay was ordained to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of 
Boston in 1974. After his ordination, Monsignor Fay was an associate 
pastor in several parishes in Massachusetts. Immediately before coming 
to the Catholic conference, he was a professor of philosophy at St. 
John's Seminary in Brighton, Massachusetts. He also served as the Dean 
of the College of Liberal Arts there and chairman of the department of 
philosophy.
  Please join me in welcoming Monsignor William P. Fay.
