James Clifford Timlin
James Clifford Timlin (born August 5, 1927 in Scranton ) is former Bishop of Scranton .
Martin John O'Connor , president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications , ordained him priestly for the Diocese of Scranton on July 16, 1951 .
Pope Paul VI appointed him on July 26, 1976 titular bishop of Gunugus and auxiliary bishop in Scranton. The Bishop of Scranton, Joseph Carroll McCormick , donated the bishop to him on September 21 of that year ; Co- consecrators were John Raphael Quinn , Archbishop of Oklahoma City , and Stanley Joseph Ott , Auxiliary Bishop of New Orleans .
On April 24, 1984, he was appointed Diocesan Bishop of Scranton.
In 1999 Timlin incardinated the priest Carlos Urrutigoity , who had been expelled from the Schismatic Society of St. Pius X. He was charged with sexual abuse of a young person in 2002 and suspended in 2005 ; a compensation payment from the diocese of US $ 450,000 to the priest's victim saved the priest from criminal conviction.
On July 25, 2003, Pope John Paul II accepted Timlin's age-related resignation.
