In Memoriam

Pope John In Memoriam

To All Graduate Parents and Alumni,

So often we hear from graduates, “Did you know that so and so passed away?”  So often we do not know about the death of a former parent, Pope John alum or former faculty member.

Once a month we will post the passing of any former parents, Pope John alumni or former faculty members.  We still have the traditional first Friday Liturgies at Pope John and we also celebrate Liturgies on feast days when those feast days fall on school days.  Starting on the first Friday in March we will post the names of the deceased who have passed away during the previous month.

How do you post the name of a loved one (parent, alum, or faculty member)?  Simply send the name to Austin Braun at
