Bishop Loughlin's Jubilee. On October 18, 1890, Right Rev. Bishop John Loughlin, D. D., celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination as a priest of the Catholic Church. He was born on December 20, 1817, in the townland of Drumbuniff, parish of Clanduff, County Down, Ireland. He made his theological studies at Mt. St. Mary's Seminary, Emmittsburg, Md., and was ordained a priest by the late Archbishop Hughes in New York on October 18, 1840. He was consecrated Bishop of Brooklyn on October 30, 1853, and was formally installed in the See November 9, 1853. The commemoration of the golden jubilee of his priesthood began at the Clermont Avenue Rink on the evening of October 17, 1890. Five thousand people assembled to witness the presentation to him of an address of congratulation from the laity with a purse of $23,667. Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishops Corrigan, Elder and many other bishops and distinguished priests were present. On the morning of October 18 Bishop Loughlin celebrated his jubilee Mass in old St. James' Church, Jay street, in the presence of an immense congregation of prelates and laity. The sermon was preached by Cardinal Gibbons. In the evening a torchlight procession, estimated at 40,000 men, marched past his residence at Greene and Clermont avenues. On the afternoon of Sunday, October 19, 20,000 Sunday school children assembled in the streets about the episcopal residence, but a violent rain-storm prevented more than half of them from being reviewed. On the evening of October 20 two hun. dred laymen tendered the Bishop a banquet of houor at the assembly rooms at the Academy of Music, at which James McMahon presided. The speakers were Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishops Corrigan and Ireland, Mayor Chapin, Bishop Keane, Dr. D. G. Bodkin and Bishop Loughlin himself. At the same place, on the afternoon of October 18, the priests of the diocese of Brooklyn gave the Bishop another banquet. Their special testimonial was a purse of $11,000 and an address read by Father Malone, the senior pastor. In addition the Bishop received a number of costly gifts from various Catholic organizations and friends.
