In Memoriam of John Shanahan

It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of John Shanahan, our beloved sacristan. John taught many in this community at St. Raphael and St. Joseph schools as a 5th grade and then a 2nd grade teacher. He served the Church in any way he could, first forming young minds and then forming young servers. He will be extraordinarily missed, especially by those who were blessed to hear his stories and enjoy his sense of humor every day.  John's funeral will be held on Tuesday, February 26, at 10:00 at St. Raphael Church.  Visitation will be from 4:00-7:00 on Monday, February 25, at Conroy's.
 
Saints of God, come to his aid!
Come to meet him, angels of the Lord!
Receive his soul and present him to God,
To God the Most High.
May Christ who called you, take you to himself.
May angels lead you to Abraham's side.
Receive his soul and present him to God,
To God the Most High.
Give him eternal rest, O Lord,
And may your light shine on him forever.
Receive his soul and present him to God,
To God the Most High.
