Default Another 'Edward Cullen'

Hi guys

I just searched Wikipedia.com for 'Edward Cullen', and apperently there is a man with that actual name! Here's the info copied and pasted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Peter_Cullen

Early life
The second of five children in an Irish Catholic family, Edward Cullen was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Edward Peter and Julia Catherine (née Leahy) Cullen.[1] He was raised in Yeadon, along with his older sister, Joan, and three younger brothers, Joseph, John, and James.[2] Cullen attended West Philadelphia Catholic High School for Boys, where he excelled at football and track and was involved in the school newspaper, and worked as a cashier at an Acme supermarket.[1]
Following his graduation from West Catholic, he studied engineering at the Drexel Institute of Technology.[1] In 1953, he entered St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Overbrook, from where he obtained Bachelor of Arts degree in 1958.[1]

Priesthood

On May 19, 1962, Cullen was ordained to the priesthood by Archbishop John Krol in the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. He then served as an assistant pastor at St. Maria Goretti Church in Hatfield and at St. Bartholomew Church in Philadelphia.
Cullen was sent by Archbishop Krol to study social work at the University of Pennsylvania, later earning his Master of Social Work degree in 1970.[1] This was followed by a Master of Religious Education from La Salle University (1971) and Master of Divinity from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary (1974).[3] From 1979 to 1993, he served as a chaplain at St. Edmond's Home for Children in Bryn Mawr.[2]
Cullen was raised to the rank of Honorary Prelate of His Holiness in April 1982[1], and served as director of Catholic Social Services from 1983 to 1988.[3] In August 1988, he was named vicar general of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. It was later reported by a grand jury that, during his tenure as vicar general, Cullen dismissed allegations of ***ual misconduct by a Philadelphia priest, who was subsequently transferred to two different parishes.[4] He later refused to reveal to a prosecutor the names of abusive priests or the parishes they served on the basis that the statute of limitations had expired, but eventually complied when four other prosecutors joined the call for disclosure.[4]

Episcopal career

On February 8, 1994, Cullen was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Philadelphia and Titular Bishop of Paria in Proconsolare by Pope John Paul II. He received his episcopal consecration on the following April 14 from Anthony Cardinal Bevilacqua, with Archbishops John Foley and Francis Schulte serving as co-consecrators.[5] He selected as his episcopal motto: "Christ, Church, Compassion."[1]

Bishop of Allentown

Cullen was later named Bishop of Allentown on December 16, 1997. Replacing the retiring Thomas Welsh, he was formally installed on February 9, 1998.[5] In 2003, he was appointed to the Board of Trustees of The Catholic University of America.[1]
Recently, Bishop Cullen formed a synod in the Allentown Diocese that seeks to close nearly a third of its parishes. SOURCE The Diocese of Allentown: News Release: <--June 1, 2008-->
With the diocese having closed 47 churches, including 32 in the Schuylkill County region this year, many Catholics reacted with dismay to the disclosure that Cullen owns the properties. However, the diocese has attributed the church closings to the shortage of priests and changing populations.

Cool, huh? He's a lucky man !

Hunh.

I was looking up something a while back-and turns out there is a LOT of Edward Cullen's. Even an Alice Cullen. None from Forks, Alaska, or wherever they originally came from, though.
