Excerpt from Acta Et Dicta, Vol. 5: A Collection of Historical Data Regarding the Origin and Growth of the Catholic Church in the Northwest; July, 1918
Thus ended the earthly career of the first Bishop of Duluth, a prelate of scholarly attainments, deep-seated piety and whole souled devotion to the Church which he had served so faithfully during the fifty years of his consecrated life. As a citizen he yielded to no man in his patriotic devotion to the land of his adoption. For more than twenty years he was one of the lead ing citizens of Minneapolis, who helped to lay the foundation of its civic greatness. On his arrival in Duluth, in 1890, he at once identified himself with every movement that was for the public welfare, for the civic and material progress of that nascent city. Until the day of his death he labored indefatigably for the civic betterment, the material progress, and the spiritual upbuilding of its citizenship, and won the respect and admiration of all with out regard to class, creed or nationality. In his death Duluth sustains no ordinary loss, for Bishop mcgolrick was a man of lofty ideals, of intense patriotism, of a deeply religious nature, and in all respects, whether as a citizen or Bishop, he measured up to the loftiest ideals of true greatness. He was the friend of all: enemies he had none, for no one who came in contact with his charming personality could harbor resentment toward him, however unjustified it might be. His sympathy and Christian charity impressed all without exception. He loved, in a special manner, little children and the poor, and no cry of distress ever fell unheeded on his ear.
