St. Augustine announces the death of Fr. Atwood

It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we inform you that Fr. Wilbur Atwood SSJ, passed away today, March 19, 2018 (the Feast Day of St. Joseph) at the age of 89.
Fr. Atwood was a much-loved and respected colleague and friend to the entire St. Augustine community and will be greatly missed.  He began his service at St. Augustine High School in 1960 where he served for fifty-eight years in multiple roles including teacher, librarian, and rector. He was an incredible friend, role-model, and mentor to all of his students and colleagues and his passing is an incredible loss.
We ask that you keep Fr. Atwood and his family in your prayers. Funeral arrangements are forthcoming.
