JPII Loses A Friend

Rev. George O’Brien, a priest of the Diocese of Worcester, former Development Director at the College of the Holy Cross, Cape resident, and early and ardent supporter of Pope John Paul II High School, died on Tuesday afternoon after a battle with cancer.

Fr. George celebrated the first Mass ever at Pope John Paul II High School, on the anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul II in April 2007, and ultimately celebrated three all-school liturgies with us. He was generous, helpful and supportive from the days prior to the school’s opening into the young life of the school. In the spring we will again see the “Pope John Paul II” roses bloom at the school’s entrance, lovingly donated by Fr. George.

Most of all, I will miss Fr. George’s sincere, wise, and generous support for all the good that we attempt to achieve with this high school. A good man, a good priest. Rev. George O’Brien, may he rest in peace.

Read Fr. George’s 2008 homily.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
