Fr. Dolan died.



Fr. Leo Austin Dolan, 1952 - 2012

Fr. Dolan was a very kind man, a faithful priest.  There is a brief biography here.  Father was also a devout promoter of the cause for the canonization of Ven. Matt Talbot.  May he rest in peace.

"The Church is the friend of mankind, the great defender of individual dignity, representing the Lord of Life. It is always open to forgiveness and restoration." - Fr. Dolan

Fr. Dolan heard some of my most difficult confessions in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Thanks be to God for the gift of his priests.

  2. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord. May perpetual light shine upon him: Forevermore with Thy Saints because Thou art gracious. May the prayer of Thy suppliant people, we beseech Thee O lord, benefit the souls of Thy departed servants and handmaids: That Thou mayest both to deliver them from all their sins and make them to be partakers of Thy redemption. Amen.

    May he and all the souls, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
    Amen.
