This is reasonable, and I hope the New York Archdiocese takes it up. The saint’s feast day is always celebrated on the day of his death, and so far as I know, he died in New York, so this wouldn’t be inappropriate. In addition, he actually spent most of his important years in New York City, and adapted with very good grace when “exiled” to Rochester.

What is the backstory on him being sent to Rochester? Seems on odd move.
