Yes. I got an email about this earlier today. Since it has a few extra details, I will copy it here:


Dear [Cicero],

On Monday, December 27, 2010, the feast of St. John the Apostle, Father John Harvey, O.F.S.F., the founder of Courage, passed away at about 3pm.

According to his religious superior, Father Harvey had taken a fall in his retirement home and had been taken to the hospital.

Father Harvey was a long-time member of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars and received our FCS Founders Award in 2010.

The wake will be on Friday December 31, 2010 from 9:30am to 11:00am, immediately followed by the funeral Mass.

DeSales Oblate Community, 1120 Blue Ball Road, Childs MD 21916

410-398-1334

Please remember the good Father Harvey in your prayers, as well as the many people with whom he worked in Courage and EnCourage!

Fr Joseph Koterski, S.J.
President, Fellowship of Catholic Scholars

He was a living Saint, and I have no doubt the cause for his canonization will be taken up quickly.
