In Memoriam

Fr. John L. Durkin - September 12, 1939 - May 6, 2019

We are very saddened to announce the passing away of Fr. John L. Durkin on Monday, 6th May 2019 at Viera Hospital. Fr. John was the priest of the Arch Diocese of NY and after his retirement in 2009 for medical reasons he came to Viera to spend his retirement at his cousin Joan Egan’s house. He helped with Weekend Masses at St. John the Evangelist and was much loved by the parishioners for his down to earth and very focused homilies. He celebrated the Golden Jubilee of his Ordination in 2017. He had been suffering from COPD for many years and died of shortness of breath. Funeral services will be held May 14, 2019 at the Immaculate Conception Church, Amenia, NY. There will be a memorial Mass at St. John the Evangelist on Saturday, 13th July 2019 at 10 a.m. followed by a luncheon. Please pray for the repose of his soul and consider joining the Mass of Thanksgiving for such a wonderful priest.
