AMERICA: USA: DEATH OF FR. HOGAN FROM PRIESTS FOR LIFE

PRIESTSFORLIFE REPORT: Priests for Life Mourns Passing of Fr. Richard Hogan

Fr. Pavone expressed sadness today at the death of Fr. Richard Hogan, a priest of the Archdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul who was released in 1995 to be the full-time Associate Director of Priests for Life. He served in that capacity for five years. He was the first priest, aside from Fr. Pavone, to be given permission to serve Priests for Life as his full-time ministry.

Fr. Hogan was a scholar and author, and wrote on the theology of the body and the philosophical and theological thought of Pope John Paul II, especially as it relates to the cause of family and life.

Fr. Pavone stated, “Fr. Hogan gave witness to the Church’s teachings on life in a persuasive and compassionate way. He enjoyed traveling and speaking on the Priests for Life mission, and was convinced that the Church is the key to resolving the problem of abortion. In particular, his willingness to serve this mission full-time, and the willingness of his Archbishop (who at that time was Most Rev. Harry Flynn) to allow him to do so, was a sign to the Church that saving the unborn is important enough for us to invest money and manpower into that specific mission.
