From Susan Chrusciel Marangos

Alumnus/a '04

I got to know Fr. Pilarz during my final year of undergrad. It was the first year of something that would truly be wonderful to the Scranton community. From his booming voice to seeing him walk Jack up the commons, he just exuded this sense of what I can only describe as contemplative joy. Like many alums, I was overjoyed to hear of his return to Scranton and then devastated to hear of his diagnosis. His shining example through the past year has been simultaneously inspiring and incredulous. My heart aches for his family, the Scranton community and all those he touched.
