15 April 2013
Father John (Jack) Olivier, PSS beloved professor of St. Joseph's College, Mt. View, California from 1947-1965 and this seminary from 1965-1969, died peacefully at the Sulpician retirement center in Catonsville, Maryland slightly before midnight on April 12, 2013. He was a beloved liturgist, musican, chant director and companion on the spiritual journey to so many both inside and outside the halls of the Seminary. He will be missed both here in the West as well as among the Sulpicians and so many friends in the East.
A memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. Patrick's on May 1, 2013 at 5PM in the main chapel. The public is invited. Due to space limitations, guests are asked to RSVP at
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and may he rest in peace.
