Bishop Cullinan expresses sympathy on the death of Fr. Pat Cogan OFM

I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Fr. Pat Cogan, OFM.

May he rest in peace. He was a visionary in many ways. His very successful efforts to provide suitable housing for the homeless and others in search of a decent home marked him out as outstanding. What he achieved was and is extraordinary. Respond and all who use its services will always be in his debt. I offer my condolences to his family, his Franciscan brothers and many friends.
