BUFFALO, N.Y. -- After more than 50 years of full-time service serving to the Catholic Church, retiring Buffalo Diocese Bishop Edward Kmiec is finally thinking about what he'll do when he has some well-deserved down time.

Kmiec sat down with 2 On Your Side Photojournalist Dave Harrington Sunday, and revealed his plans for the future, including where he's going to live. Harrington spoke to the Bishop after he thanked volunteers at Catholic Charities for their work during appeal week.

Kmiec said, so far, the appeal has gone remarkably well, raising $8 million toward its goal of $10.6 million as of Sunday afternoon.

"People are sometimes saying to me, 'how are you enjoying your retirement?' I say, 'I haven't even begun,'" Kmiec joked.
