Lillis, Thomas Francis, coadjutor bishop of Kansas City, Mo., formerly bishop of Leavenworth, was born at Lexington, Mo., March 3, 1862, a son of James and Margaret (Jordan) Lillis, both natives of County Clare, Ireland. He attended the public schools of Lafayette county, Mo., St. Benedict's College at Atchison, Kan., and Niagara University at Niagara Falls, N. Y., where he was prepared for the priesthood and ordained in Aug., 1885. His first appointment was to the parish at Shackleford, Mo., where he remained until he became rector of St. Patrick's church at Kansas City, Mo., in 1887. In 1904 Father Lillis was consecrated bishop of Leavenworth and installed in the Leavenworth cathedral early in 1905. At the request of the bishops of the province of St. Louis and the priests of Kansas City, Mo., in 1910, Bishop Lillis was appointed coadjutor to Bishop Hogan of Kansas City to succeed him at his death.
