|A brick at our school entrance honoring our founders|
Sr. Angela too left religious life and was married to Michael until her death in 1984. Sr. Frances still lives in Manchester and works at Saint Anselm College.
Michael had been sick for a number of years with, I believe, cancer so his death was not unexpected. But his death does mark the end of an era. I met Michael twice - once in 2007 when I interviewed him and Sr. Frances and in 2011 when he spoke at an assembly we hosted to honor the Christian Brothers during our 40th anniversary celebrations. He was a quiet and humble man but very generous with his time.
You can read his obituary and more about his life here.
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
