Msgr. Joseph Edward Conlon, 80, founding priest of Holy Rosary Parish in Cherry Hill, died Wednesday at St. Mary's Catholic Home. He served at Holy Rosary from 1958 until 1972 and was responsible for the construction of the parish hall, the school and the convent. Although he went on to other churches, Msgr. Conlon was honored in September when Holy Rosary renamed the parish hall after him. More than 400 people turned out. He was "one of the finest priests we have ever had in the Camden Diocese," said James Schad, retired auxiliary bishop.

Keeler of Baltimore.

Bishop Joseph Martino, head of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Scranton and one of the most fervent pro-life voices in the nation, is widely reported to be resigning next week after just six years in the office and long before traditional retirement age. Martino, 62, who served as a priest and auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, has rarely appeared in public during his term in the 350,000-member Scranton diocese. Yet he has not shied from controversy, denouncing pro-choice politicians, theologically liberal academics, and Catholic teachers' unions.

Bishop William H. Keeler of Harrisburg yesterday was named archbishop of Baltimore, the oldest Catholic archdiocese in the United States.

Faced with an enrollment smaller than most parochial schools' and little prospect of improvement, Sacred Heart High School in Vineland, N.J., will close in June. Founded in 1927, Sacred Heart enrolls about 168 students in grades nine through 12, well below the threshold of 220 that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Camden considers viable even for grammar schools. With 52 seniors graduating this spring and just 21 freshmen starting in the fall, the prospect of a turnaround seemed slight, according to diocesan officials.
