Godspeed, Fr. Kilcarr

With deep sadness, we mourn the passing of Father Stephen Kilcarr, whom the Lord called to Himself on the morning of Thursday, June 22.

Father Kilcarr served the people of Saint Joseph’s Church with humility and grace since the formation of the parish in 1956 – first as Parochial Vicar, then as Weekend Assistant for the many years he taught theology and coached baseball at Seton Hall Prep, and into his retirement.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Father Kilcarr’s family as we offer our deepest sympathy and prayers. Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord and let the perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in the peace of Christ. Amen.
