On April 23rd, a memorial Mass was celebrated in honour of Father Eric Maclean, S.J. on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of his passing.
A former student, teacher, chaplain, principal and president of Loyola, Father Maclean embodied the best of what a Jesuit education in general, and a Loyola High School education in particular, represent. At a critical juncture in Loyola’s history, he helped shape the vision that brought the school to where it is today.
Friends, family, former colleagues and former students attended the memorial to honour a man who had such a lasting impact. Presiding over the Mass were Father Murray, S.J., Father Brennan, S.J., Father Mathieu, S.J., Father Bertoli, Father Scott, S.J., and Father Foliot, S.J.
Father Robert Foliot, S.J. '62 gave a heartfelt homily that was very much appreciated by those in attendance. In fact, after a number of people asked for a copy of the homily, Father Foliot was gracious enough to share it here.
