Fr. Wilfred: Fr. Wilfred, who died on 23 September 2011, was unselfishly committed to his students at Saint Vincent Prep and then for several decades at the Benedictine Military School in Savannah. Although a Pennsylvanian, he easily became an exemplary embodiment of generous Southern hospitality.
Br. Fred: Br. Fred died on 17 April 2011. He was a gentle soul with a quiet humor marked by a sly twinkle in his eye and a soft chuckle. After helping in our priory in Brazil, he worked behind the scenes for many years as purchasing agent in the Facilities Management Office on campus and was always ready to assist monks with computer questions.
Fr. Omer: Fr. Omer died on 17 January 2011. He was Professor of Homiletics in the Seminary for decades as well as subprior and archivist in the monastery for over a quarter century. He was an historian and storyteller by nature who relished recounting the humorous dimension of common human foibles.
We pray today for our brothers who have passed from death to life in company with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
