    No need for concern. There is another Jim Callan in the diocese. He is a buddy of Fr. Spilly. This man is not Mrs. Rammerman's right hand man. Rest on this one…

    The excommunicated Callan had a cousin, Fr. L. James Callan, but I think he passed away.

  3. It is THE Jim Callan of Corpus Christi fame, now with independent Spiritus Christi.

    Fr. L. James Callan was pastor of St. Thomas in Irondequoit. I think we've all heard of that church. He was Jim Callan's uncle.

    I believe that L. James was quite orthodox.

  5. Monk says:

    Fr L. James Callan was a very holy priest….one of the best! May God's eternal light shine upon him!

  6. Bishop Clark has had a rocky relationship with the Callans, past and present, to say the least. L. James didn't like him and James L. left him and started his own church

  7. DnGS says:

    I’m not sure that it can be said that “L. James” (Callan) didn’t like him (Bp. Clark). I know that he did not like some of the Bishop’s decisions. But he was loyal to his bishop, as he promised to be at his ordination. He was loyal while Jim was not. L. James was a priest in good standing, whereas his nephew excommunicated himself. Some have tried to establish some kind of symmetry between the two Callans, suggesting that they were two substantially identical peas on opposite sides of the pod. That doesn’t work. Jim was disobedient. L. James was not. Perhaps he was a little balky at times, but he was a son of the Church. It was one of the highest privileges ever given me when I preached at his funeral.
