Commentaires : Right Reverend Thomas Francis Barry, D.D., the second Bishop of Chatham, New Brunswick was of Irish parentage and was born in Pokemouche, Gloucester County,N.B. on March 3, 1841. He was ordained priest at Montreal, August 5th, 1866, and consecrated Bishop of Thugga and co-adjutor with right of succession to the Chatham See, on Feb. 16th, 1900. He became Bishop of Chatham on February 18, 1902, on the resignation of Rt. Rev. James Rogers, D.D., the first Bishop of Chatham. Bishop Casey, now the Archbishop of Vancouver, was consecrated at the same time. For many years, Bishop Barry was a resident of Bathurst and erected a handsome church and Presbytery there, while Vicar- General.Owing to advancing years, the Holy See, at his request, granted him an auxiliary and on Jan. 30th, 1914, Rev James Louis O'Leary, D. D. was appointed. Bishop Barry commenced his classical studies in the Academy which stood in the rear of the St. John Cathedral in Archbishop Connolly's time and afterwards attended the Sulpician Seminary, Montreal, finishing his theological studies at the Grand Seminary in that city. On returning to Chatham, he became parish priest of the pro-Cathedral and also Rector of St. Nicholas College. His next charge was at Caraquet, then he went to Madawaska and lastly to Bathurst. On four occasions he visited Europe and made two trips to the Holy Land, the last one in company with Bishop Casey. With the late Bishop Sweeney he attended the church Congress in Baltimore in 1889. He also was present at the Plenary Council, Quebec, in September 1909, and the Eucharistic Congress at Montreal in September of 1910. Bishop Barry had a large number of friends throughout the provinces who read of his demise with deep regret. Bishop Barry's death occurred at 1:30 p.m. on January 19, 1920 as a result of complications from pneumonia. To his closing days Bishop Barry displayed untiring zeal and unflagging earnestness in the performance of his sacred duties. (From the Bishop Barry file at St. Michael's Museum, Chatham, New Brunswick) An article from the "New Brunswick Memories" section of the Telegraph Journal on October 27, 2005, page 10, states the following: "In 1871, Thomas was transferred to the Restigouche missions. Standing six-feet, four inches tall, and wearing size 14 shoes, he was physically equipped for the rigorous conditions of 19th century rural New Brunswick. Eventually, the area which he administered required the assignment of seven priest. Father Barry then served at St. Basile (1876-1880), Caraquet (1880-1885), and Bathurst. In Bathurst, he built the church, presbytery, and the convent school. The church is now the cathedral for the Bathurst diocese." Further in the article, it notes: " Bishop Barry was a zealous prelate. Among his many accomplishments, he initiated the construction of St. Michael's Cathedral ( now Basilica) as an architectural expression of prayer and praise, operated extensive health care and education systems through the efforts of several religious congregations, assisted Father Richard and the Trappists in establishing the Rogersville monastery, and founded St. Thomas College with the Basilian Order. By offering spiritual rigour, religious authority, and supernatural emphasis, Bishop Barry opened wide the door of faith, and many entered.
