July 6 - Father Neil Paquette

Our Father Neil passed away this morning, fifteen minutes after Fr. Mark administered the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. We will celebrate his funeral Mass and burial at 7am on Monday, July 10.
Father Neil Paquette was born in 1937 in Harrisburg, PA (USA). He entered New Melleray in 1975 and made his solemn profession in 1980. Fr. Neil was 80 years old and five days short of the 40th anniversary of his first profession of monastic vows when the Lord called him. He succumbed to a brief bout with an aggressive cancer after several years of living with the effects of a stroke.
