Last sermon Fr Larry

Roman Catholic Parish priest of St. Patrick’s Parish church, Fr. George Agger, announced and described yesterday morning Father Larry’s passing as a tremendous loss.

Father Larry Finnegan died at a hospital in Ireland on Sunday at the age of seventy eight (78). The Catholic Priest served on Montserrat from 1993 to 2000 and retired from active ministry in 2009.

Fr. Larry who was awarded the OBE and the Montserrat badge of honour is remembered this way by one parishioner: “Father Larry being a man of God moved into the Salem Catholic Church (St. Martin de Porres) shelter with his people. This man was offered over and over, villas, hotel rooms and other accommodations, just name it. These accommodations were offered by people who thought that he should not live in an emergency shelter with ordinary people. His simple reply was, “My place is with my people.” What a humble man!”

More to come…
