Cardinal Gibbons holds Father O'Keefe's memory in the highest esteem and says that he always did the work of two priests.

Father O'Keefe modeled his parochial school after the public schools, using, whenever possible, the same textbooks. The only difference was that Christian doctrine is taught in the former school.
