Press Release

Congressman Brian Higgins released the following statement in response to news of the passing of Msgr. William Gallagher:


“Monsignor Bill Gallagher lived a life of service to his country in the United States Army, to his Western New York community, and to his beloved church.  With Monsignor Gallagher, you always knew where he stood, and he, without question, stood with the people.  He was a man of acceptance and peace, starting each of his masses with the words “you are welcome here” and while there is great sadness in our loss of this faithful ambassador there is peace in knowing Monsignor Gallagher is now receiving the same welcome at the gates of heaven.”
