Father Eugene LaVerdiere, SSS dies
The NFPC received word that Blessed Sacrament Father Eugene LaVerdiere died in Cleveland, OH on Nov. 20 after a long illness. Father LaVerdiere was a visiting and adjunct professor of New Testament at Catholic Theological Union for a number of years and was senior editor of Emmanuel magazine. He wrote many books and articles on biblical topics and conducted innumerable workshops for priests, religious and laity across the country and across the world. His work had a particular emphasis on the Eucharist in the New Testament and the New Testament theology of mission. In the past few years Father LaVerdiere had suffered a stroke and other physical difficulties that made it impossible for him to continue his ministry of teaching but never quenched his radiant and hopeful spirit. Until his retirement in 2005 he was national secretary of the Pontifical Missionary Union for Clergy and Religious and served as a consultant for mission education of clergy and seminarians for the National Office of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. Two of his siblings, Sister Claudette LaVerdiere, MM, and Brother Gary LaVerdiere, SSS, were with him at the time of death. A second brother, Peter, of California, also survives him.
A visitation will take place on Monday, November 24, at Saint Paschal Baylon Church, in Highland Heights, Ohio, from 3:00-6:00 p.m., followed by the Funeral Mass at 7:00. Burial will be on Tuesday, November 25, and is private for the family and the members of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament. A Memorial Mass for Father LaVerdiere will be celebrated at Saint Jean Baptiste Church in New York City at a date and time to be determined.
