MANOGUE, Patrick, R. C. bishop, born in Desert, County Kildare, Ireland, in 1831. He studied classics and mathematics in a college in Callan, County Kilkenny, emigrated to the United States in 1856, and entered the University of St. Mary of the Lake, Chicago, where he followed a course of theology and philosophy. After graduation he went to California, and was for some time superintendent and part owner of a mine in Moore's Flat, Nevada county, but he afterward disposed of his interests and sailed for Europe, where he prepared for the priesthood in the Sulpitian seminary, Paris, and was ordained in 1861. He was appointed pastor of Virginia City in 1862, with jurisdiction over almost the entire country which now forms the state of Nevada, and where he continued during his missionary life. He acquired great influence among the miners of this region, and also won the affection of the Piute Indians, large numbers of whom became converts. He was for several years vicar-general of the diocese of Grass Valley, and was its administrator during the bishop's absence. He built one of the finest churches on the Pacific coast in Virginia City. In 1880 he was appointed coadjutor bishop of the diocese, and was consecrated bishop of Ceramos in partibus infidelium on 16 January, 1881. ]n 1884 he succeeded Bishop O'Connell. There are now (1888) twelve religious institutions in his diocese, with three asylums, a hospital, 37 churches, 75 stations, and a Roman Catholic population of about 10,000.
