In Memory

Father Bob Begin

Plain Press, August 2022     It seems that the passing of Bob Begin is a momentous occasion in the history of the Near West Side. For 50 years Bob was at the center of the creative energy in serving the poor and marginalized, for which this community was known. His vision of a just, more equitable, and kinder world, inspired or supported, in some way, most of the local anti-poverty and social justice programs which we were blessed with these many years.

   In his memory, may we appreciate his giftedness and energy, and treasure his legacy.

There will be a Memorial for Bob Begin at St Colman’s on Saturday, August 13, at 10:00 a.m. followed by a Mass at 10:30 a.m.
