AGE: 74 years old
Brother Patrick was born in Canada. In the area of his birth, he finished his grammar and high school studies, and entered among us in 1957. He made his Novitiate in Springfield MA.
In 1963, he served as cook of our Community in Springfield, and then after that, in the Novitiate in Waterville NY. At the end of this same year, he was assigned to the parochial Office in Springfield.
From 1964 – 1968, he served to perfection in various domestic charges.
He was then sent to work in the Information Center, in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario [Canada]. There he poured himself into the work with dedication, and managed a religious article store there.
In 1975, he moved to Timmins, Ontario [Canada], where for 13 years he efficiently administered another religious article store, connected to our parish there. When our House in Timmins was closed, Brother Patrick returned to Waltham.
In 1992, his health began to deteriorate in a serious manner. He supported these sufferings with exemplary patience, in the same manner in which he had conducted his life for years: serene, cordial toward all, affable, obedient, without ever complaining.
