Benedictines: October 2010 Archives

Timothy Kelly.jpgThe monastic family of Saint John's Abbey and the American Cassinese Congregation mourns the passing of Abbot Timothy Kelly who died on October 7. He was 76 and had been suffering from cancer.

Abbot Timothy was the 9th abbot of St John's Abbey (1992-2000) and was the Abbot-President of his congregation of monks from 2001 till this past June. The Abbot's monastic life was rich in service to abbey and the wider Church.

The present abbot of Saint John's, John Klassen, has an obit here.

Saints Benedict and Scholastic, pray for Timothy and the Saint John's community.

May the angels lead Abbot Timothy to the Kingdom.
