GIORGE CONNORS (priest)
He knew the Stigmatines during his studies in Springfield. He entered the Institute at Waltham at the age of 22. He studied philosophy and theology in our seminary of Wellesley and was ordained a priest in June 1949.
He spent some years in Manassas (VI) and then he lived in some of our parishes of Massachusetts. He lived for four years in Sault St Marie (Ontario) in Canada.
Since 1965 he resided in the USA until his death. During this time he dedicated himself to preaching missions and retreats and offered his service to various parishes in the diocese of Syracuse (NY).
He was much appreciated and sought after. He contracted a tumour and died because of an internal haemorrhage, after receiving the last sacraments.
