Monsignor William Fitzgerald
former St. Philip pastor, friend, mentor
We mourn the loss of our beloved former St. Philip pastor, friend, mentor, Monsignor William Fitzgerald, who passed away yesterday, and ask that families continue to pray for his soul. Father Fitz brought countless people closer to God, inspired faith, and has been referred to as the kindest and most Christ-like person known.
Father Fitz was a champion for Catholic education, sharing this quote 4 years ago, regarding the Reverend William Fitzgerald Endowment for Tuition Assistance fund:
"Thank you especially for being of one heart with me in our passion for Catholic education. There is nothing more exciting than to be part of the way children and young people learn, especially when the Teacher is Jesus Himself in the Power of the Holy Spirit."
"You have been a partner with me, and have honored my years of priesthood, in helping families who cannot by themselves afford to send their children to the schools they desperately desire for them. Together, we have made it possible for dozens of families and hundreds of children to be an essential part of that education enterprise. Thank you."
