Charles Joseph O'Reilly

Charles Joseph O'Reilly (January 4, 1860 – February 4, 1923) was a Canadian-born Roman Catholic clergyman.

He was born in St. John, New Brunswick, and received his education at St. Joseph's College, Memramcook, and the Grand Seminary, Montreal.[1] He was ordained to the priesthood at Portland, Oregon, on June 29, 1890.[2] He was then named to the mission of Oswego and Tegardville, and was made rector of the Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Portland, in February 1894.[3]

On June 25, 1903, O'Reilly was appointed the first Bishop of the newly erected Diocese of Baker City by Pope Leo XIII.[2] He received his episcopal consecration on the following August 25 from Archbishop Alexander Christie, with Bishops Alphonse Joseph Glorieux and Edward John O'Dea serving as co-consecrators.[2] He was named the third Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska, on March 20, 1918.[2]
