Remembering Fr. Michael Sullivan, O.S.A.

I first met Fr. Michael Sullivan, O.S.A. when he helped out the local parish in Long Beach Island, NJ, then his Lenten retreats to local parishes. I always referred to him as the entertaining priest who held your attention. I loved listening to Fr. Sullivan’s sermons in the NY/NJ area, and his DVDs. He called me Curly Top for my curly hair. Fr. Sullivan always had a big smile and a big hug to give. I’ve missed seeing him since COVID put a halt on him traveling.  May Fr. Sullivan be at peace in God’s love.

Father Marcellus, Father Bill Maguire, and Father Murnane were good friends. They often referred to themselves as “3M”!

The Legacy of

St. Augustine in the Catholic Church

Augustine was a thoughtful, empathetic, and loving servant of God. He valued community, welcomed others, and treated them the way they deserved to be treated. Augustine also laid the foundation for the Order of St. Augustine. The Order continues to explore ways to care for those in great need both in our Province work throughout Massachusetts, New Jersey, and surrounding states and in our greater missions throughout the world.

We invite you to continue to learn about St. Augustine, his life, and his teachings.
