  1. Thank you his beautiful tribute to Father Noel. Every word is true. Father Noel was my parish priest in Makiungu in the 80’s. He was very good to me and helped the patients in the hospital spiritually. when there was little hope they would get better.

  2. His body was in the Pallottine chapel one morning. I learned it was Fr. Noel`s about whom Fr. Monson had spoken -a companion and true missionary. May his good soul enjoy peace and rest in the Lord.

  3. A lovely human being who I’ll miss greatly. So compassionate, loving and gently. Rest in peace faithful servant.

  5. The first time my husband and I met Fr Noel. Another Pallotine Fr TJ Moloney brought him to our Home in Deaborn Hts Michigan. (When he first came to Wyandotte Mich ) I made him a Cup a tea from Irish Tea. He just raved about it He Said that like Tea in Ireland. I never for got that.

    What a very special story you shared with us so touching for which I thank you, I love the fact that you said the Divine Mercy at the time you beloved friend was leaving this world. May his gentle soul now rest in peace

  10. From Peter O’Connor

    Wow, as a nephew of Noel I feel such great pride on hearing your words about him. They obviously come from a very honest and pure place in your heart. I will be honest and say that my granmother was the well that we all drew our faith from. Thank you everyone who expressed their condolences, it means so much to his family that Noel meant so much to so many.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful thoughts about Father Noel. It helps to bring him back a little. I made tea for Noel at our MMM home in the Bronx, but could not find the Barry’s tea we had someplace and gave him Lipton. Even 2 bags of it was not as good as Irish tea. Noel told me he had to fly to his Mission Appeals in the USA because he could not get a cup of decent tea anywhere.
      He was very good to me as a Parish Priest in Makiungu in the 80’s. We were very spiritually and humanly looked after.
      One day, A Muslim man was dying and I asked him if he would liked to be blessed by Father Noel who was usually found in the hospital looking after the sick patients. The man said yes and I know Noel gave him God’s presence and peace. Thank you Father Noel.
