To the people of the Diocese of Gallup,

When he was active in the Diocese, he was stationed in Winslow, AZ (1969-1970); Holbrook, AZ (1969, 1970-71, 1973-74); and was involved in founding St. Bonaventure School in Thoreau, NM (1974-1994).

He is survived by two siblings, and the funeral will take place in Staten Island, NY.

We ask for prayers for the repose of his soul and comfort for his family.

McNeill was a priest named on our Credibly Accused list. Prior to his death, his priestly faculties had been removed, and he subsequently retired and moved away from the Diocese of Gallup. Please also pray for survivors of abuse, as they seek healing.
