Richard J. Colgan, CSP

Fr. Richard Colgan, ordained a Paulist priest in 1979, served in many locations during his life. The final decade of his life saw him guiding Paulist novices through their initial experience of the Community. Cheerful, loving, positive, Rich combined natural qualities of friendliness with a vast interest in theology, Shakespeare, and US politics. Preparation for a bone marrow transplant weakened his resistance to Covid-19, leading to his death May 25, 2020 at 11:45 PM.
