Det. Steven McDonald's saving grace remembered throughout Diocese

It’s been decades since NYPD Detective Steven McDonald first brought his message of love, compassion and forgiveness to the Catholic schools, religious education programs, service organizations and worthy causes in the Diocese of Trenton.

But when Det. McDonald passed from this life Jan. 10 to the heavenly realm that was undoubtedly his eternal destiny, folks remembered their first encounters with the hero cop like it was yesterday. Unfailingly they spoke of Det. McDonald’s courage as he nobly carried the cross that rendered him paralyzed by a teenager’s gunshot while on routine patrol.

They spoke of his love for his family, and most of all, they spoke of his faith, his “unshakable love of Christ, his message of forgiveness and peace and his focus on doing  good, standing up for what was right.” That was how Dominica Vullo, coordinator of religious education in Holmdel’s St. Catharine Parish, put it the day after he died.

St. Catharine is the spiritual home of Det. McDonald’s sister, Clare, a catechist there, and her family: husband Timothy and sons, Matthew and Timmy. It was also, Vullo recalled, a place McDonald came every spring for 10 years to “speak to the Confirmation class. To give his witness.”
