Father Paul

Monday, Jul. 26, 2010

To Father Paul Locatelli's family and his Jesuit Family we offer our sincere sympathys. We got to know Father Paul through my brother -in-law who also was a Jesuit in Rome. Father Paul and Father Jérome Gagnier became very good and close friends and Father Paul was our main contact when Jérôme became ill in Rome. He also introduced Jérôme to Skype and that was our way of seeing and talking to them both. He also got a cell phone for him so we were able to keep in touch with him during his illness, Father Jérôme passed away Aug.16-2008 and when we had our memorial mass here in Stoney-Point,Ontario ,Father Paul came as a very good friend and to represent the Jesuits from Rome.He spend the week-end with us and it was easy to see why the two of them connected so well.Since that time we had been in contact with him at least once a month and since we had not been able to reah him in the last 2 months I figured he was on one of his many travels.. It is with a very heavy heart that I write this little remembrance after I learned last night from another Canadian Jesuit of his passing away.I do know that he is in a much better place and enjoying being with his parents and Father Jérôme. Father Paul REST IN PEACE. You Canadian friends, Pauline and Jean-Paul Gagnier
