Tribute to our beloved former chaplain Fr Sam Parsons, OP

We recently had the privilege of hosting the Vigil service for the funeral of our dear former chaplain, Fr. Sam Parsons, OP. Great Scripture scholar that he was, Father taught for many years at the Angelicum in Rome during the school year and in various schools in this area during the summer.    During the years that Father Sam was with us when he was semi-retired, he treated us to weekly lectures on Scripture which opened our minds to the beauties of the holy writings, especially the Letters of St. Paul. As he aged and had to retire from all active ministry, he kept in touch and demonstrated as great a love for our community as ours for him.

May He Rest in Peace
