Reverend Monsignor John T. Meehan received his bachelors degree from Manhattan College in 1959. He entered Saint Joseph’s Seminary in the fall and was ordained for the archdiocese of New York on May 30, 1964. He was associated with six parishes Resurrection, Our Lady of Lourdes, Saint Charles Borromeo, Our Lady of Grace, All Saints and St. Mary’s Church, Mount Vernon. He received a masters degree in counseling from Iona College in 1979 and served as a counselor at Cardinal Hayes High School, and Rice High School.
In 1967 he was asked by Cardinal Cooke to initiate a leadership program for African-American young men. It was called the “Archbishop Leadership Project”. It was duplicated in Brooklyn the “Bishop Leadership Program” and for Hispanic males in New York “The Cardinals Leadership Program”. In 1979 Msgr. Meehan was assigned to direct the Pierre Toussaint Residence in Manhattan as a residence for minority men preparing for professional careers as doctors, lawyers and clergy. When he retired from active ministry, he volunteered at Cardinal Hayes High School in the counseling department and initiated a program, then called “The Presidents Men” for student leaders. He spent his whole priesthood, extolling others and showing them how God had created them to do exceptional things. He leaves behind two nieces, and two nephews, Mary, Ellen (Robbie) Degnan, Colleen Fletcher, Kevin (Tonia) Fletcher, and Michael (Jeannine Hill) Fletcher.
