Professed 2 February 1953

Marists in Australia mourn the passing on Nov 09 of Fr Louis Molloy SM, aged 92, at Crowley Care Nursing Home, Ballina, after several years of debilitating illness. He was approaching his 65th anniversary of priestly ordination.

In earlier years Fr Lou was involved in Marist secondary education in Bellambi and Lismore, seminary formation in Oceania, and later in AIDS/HIV Pastoral Care Ministry in Perth, before retiring to Ballina.

Bearing his illness with faith and equanimity, Fr Lou maintained a keen interest in Marist affairs and kept regular contact with confreres and friends. His funeral and cremation took place in Ballina. May he rest in peace
