Father Gaffney is a Redemptorist Missionary, ordained 45 years.

He has given countless parish missions throughout the United States.

He has conducted Bible workshops, parish community experiences as well as couple, youth and family retreats.

In 1996, he was invited by the late Cardinal O’Connor to give parish missions in the Archdiocese of New York.

That same year, he became part of the Sacred Heart Apostolate, encouraging the enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in homes, schools and parishes. This led to Cardinal O’Connor consecrating the Archdiocese of New York to the Sacred Heart.

Father Gaffney’s ardent desire is that every person and every family center their lives in Christ.

He has a gift of touching the hearts of young and old alike.

Now stationed in the Bronx, he is eager to proclaim the healing, loving merciful presence of the Lord in our everyday lives.

Father Gaffney was also a pastor of nine years and coordinator of a retreat house.
