Love of the Word: The Gift of John Mahoney

  Sacred Heart Parish Mass intentions on Sunday Nov. 22 will be in memory of John Mahoney, the nationally-acclaimed Romantics scholar, Wordsworth authority, and devoted parishioner who died in September at the age of 87.  Following the 10:00 a.m. Mass, in the Sacred Heart Parish Center, will be a presentation of appreciation for our beloved Boston College lector, teacher, and well-missed friend. The purpose of the event is to carry forward the Sacred Heart tradition of love for the Word and enthusiastic involvement in the lector ministry, which Dr. Mahoney exemplified and shared over his lifetime. Fellow parish lectors will give prepared remarks, and there will be an open period at the end for comments.

    In appreciation for his contributions, and his heart-felt loss, his family writes: “John’s contributions to the parish include foremost his commitment to family and parish life, by example, direct involvement in many facets of parish life and loyalty to friends and the parish community. In addition to his premier presence as a lector for decades he served as a member of the Sacred Heart Parish Pastoral Council, a CCD teacher, consultant to the CCD program and mentor to its teachers. John was someone to whom people turned for his candor and honesty in all discussions of parish life. His deep spiritual life was apparent in his care and kindness to all.”

    Dr. Mahoney’s life is described at length in two beautiful obituaries written at the time of his death. The Boston College obituary of John Mahoney can be accessed here.  To read the obituary published in The Boston Globe, click here.
