Rev. John O’Brien, RIP

Paul Pearson passed along some sad news about one of our longtime members.

He writes, “Fr. John O’Brien, CP, a long time ITMS member died of a massive heart attack on Friday. He was due to attend the Merton and Ecology day at Bellarmine yesterday [Saturday], but I’d heard on Wednesday that he’d be unable to attend. He also attended many ITMS conferences, but Chicago would have been the first time he was to present a paper.”
