Here is his bio and a quote I found about him:
The man has taken a formerly Irish Catholic Parish that was dying and turned it into the most successful black parish in the archdiocese. Amazingly he has done it in a neighborhood that is not middle class and that has serious social problems. If he had taken a parish in a middle class black neighborhood and made it successful it would have been amazing enough, but he did it in what is best described as ghetto. ....(He) preaches self reliance, personal responsibility, and helping your fellow man.
In Cincinnati, the remaining urban parishes are typically subsidized by the diocese, but in Chicago, St. Sabina is self-sufficient. I can't help but think that if the Archdiocese of Cincinnati had more priests like this, they might be more successful in the inner-city, and perhaps wouldn't have sold or demolished so many old churches for lack of attendance.
