COUNCIL INFORMATION

Bishop Edward Dunne

Edward Joseph Dunne was the second Catholic Bishop of Dallas, and was born at Gertnahoe, Tipperary, Ireland, on April 23, 1848. He grew up in Chicago, where his parents had moved when he was very young. He was educated at St. Mary of the Lake School in Chicago, St. Francis Seminary in Milwaukee, and St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1871, returning to Chicago as an assistant parish priest. In 1873, he worked at St. Mary's Parish in Chicago, and in 1875, he was appointed pastor of the new parish of All Saints and the fiscal overseer of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Dunne was installed as Bishop of Dallas on January 17, 1894. During his sixteen years as Bishop, Dunne built several schools, churches and St. Paul’s Hospital. He raised funds for, and helped design, the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, later renamed the Catedral Santuario de Guadalupe. He was known for his frugal lifestyle, vision for Dallas, and his commitment to education. On August 5, 1910, Dunne died of a heart attack and was buried in Chicago.
