“It is with great shock and sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Fr. Kevin O’Reilly, Academic Dean and Professor of Dogmatic Theology. An alumnus of Dunwoodie and ordained a Priest of the Archdiocese of New York on May 11, 1996, Fr. O’Reilly served St. Joseph’s Seminary as a faculty member and administrator since 2004. We pray for the soul of Fr. Kevin and we pray also for the consolation of his family, loved ones, and all of his former students and colleagues! Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. Let perpetual light shine upon him!” (from https://dunwoodie.edu)
