Rev. Charles E. Sweeney was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Buffalo, New York less than a year before he died. He had begun studies for the priesthood in 1920 but ill health forced him to change his plans. He then joined the Buffalo Fire Department, in which he served for 26 years. In 1949, he entered Canisius College and received a BA degree in 1953. His retirement as a junior captain in the fire Department followed and he entered Christ the King Seminary at St. Bonaventure University.
Because he had contracted a liver ailment, his ordination on May 30, 1957, in Wilmington, NC took place a year earlier than scheduled. One of the first masses he celebrated was for the Firemen of Buffalo, New York at St. Joseph Old Cathedral.
His first assignment was to the Diocese of Raleigh NC. He had been assigned to St. Rose of Lima Parish, Buffalo, at the time of his death at the age of 55.
