Funeral today for former Newark Archbishop Peter Leo Gerety

A funeral for former Newark Archbishop Peter Leo Gerety, who was the oldest bishop in the world at age 104 when died last week, will be officiated by Archbishop John J. Myers Monday afternoon.

Gerety led the Newark archdiocese for 12 years until his retirement in the mid-1980s,  through a period of change and tumult in the post-Vatican II period.

Gerety was credited with an openness that invited lay people – especially women and minorities - into leadership rolls in the church. For his initiatives, such as introducing sex education into the archdiocese schools and his commitment to the poor of Newark, he was regarded as one of the nation’s most progressive Roman Catholic prelates.

In a 1999 interview with The Record, Gerety, describing his mission as archbishop, said:  “I strive to remember that each human being on earth has a dignity given to him or her by Almighty God, and justice must be done.”
