St. Joseph's Church in Greenwich Village
Fr. John P. McGuire, O.P., in memoriam
Good evening and Merry Christmas.
I'm writing with the very sad news that our dear brother, Father John P. McGuire, O.P., has passed away. Father McGuire died peacefully in his sleep last night after celebrating the great feast of Christmas. May Jesus, our newborn Prince of Peace, bring Father McGuire to the glory of heaven and bring consolation to all of us who mourn his loss.
Funeral arrangements are still pending and I'll send a second email when they've been finalized. For now, please join me in praying for Father McGuire — our friend, brother, and pastor — who for so many years has prayed for us.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
Fr. James Cuddy, O.P.
