Rest in Peace | Fr. Rich Colgan, CSP

Tuesday, May 26, the Feast of S. Philip Neri: 

It is with sadness that we announce the death of our former pastor, Father Rich Colgan, CSP. He passed away at Washington Hospital Center last evening (Monday) from complications from Covid-19.

Arrangements are pending. The Paulist Fathers plan to schedule a wake and funeral Mass that will be live-streamed so that family, community and friends together can grieve his loss. Please click this link to see the In Memoriam page on the Paulist website:

May the angels lead Fr. Rich to paradise and may his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.


Father Richard Colgan, former pastor of St. Philip Neri Parish, died on the evening of May 25th.  It was Fr Frank DeSiano who informed me this morning that Father Colgan died from COVID-19 and cancer complications.  Fr. DeSiano stated that Fr. Colgan “always missed St. Philip’s.”
