From the Washington Province
It is with the greatest confidence in the merciful love of God that we announce the passing of our dear brother, Fr. Kieran Kavanaugh OCD, who was called from this life early this morning. (Feb 2)
Today's feast of the Presentation of the Lord, in which we focus on the gift of consecrated life, is a most fitting and beautiful occasion for his leaving us. It seems that instead of the Lord coming to visit Fr. Kieran as He visited the temple; the Lord decided to bring Fr. Kieran to His own temple. It is also fitting because Fr. Kieran had such great love and devotion for the Infant Jesus.
Funeral arrangements are pending. With that announcement a proper obituary will be given. For now his brothers who mourn our loss ask for your prayers for our beloved brother.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon him
May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
