A Note on the Passing of Msgr. Awalt

I received this in my email box regarding Msgr. Awalt. I thought that I would share it with each of you.


I am deeply sorry to hear that Msgr William J Awalt has passed away. He was the Pastor at St. Ann Church at Tenly Town, Washington DC during the years 1981 - 1987 during which time I was in residence in the rectory and he looked after me with such dedication and care. He was a great teacher from whom I learnt alot. He had a great heart for the missions. He not only gave me free residence even after I returned he used to send me a collection of donations from St. Ann Parish for my work here in Sri Lanka. May he Rest in Peace.

Msgr Emmanuel Fernando
Auxiliary Bishop Elect
Archdiocese of Colommbo Sri Lanka
