Heartbreaking, there are no words to describe this loss. He was a great man and I will never forget him!


Rest In Peace...he was an inspiration and I’m so glad he was president when I was there. I was honored to come back and play for his second inauguration ceremony. His love for The U was evident.


"Stay that close, grow even closer. Dance at one another's weddings, stand as godparents for each other's kids. As a Jesuit friend of mine is fond of saying, 'the conversation will get richer and the jokes will get funnier.' The conversation among Scranton friends will be a consolation for you down all the days ahead. Don't waste love." - Father Pilarz

Rest In Peace, thank you Father Pilarz for everything you’ve done for our university


Thank you for giving us all something so special


A Remarkable and Honorable man R. Pilarz, Rest In Peace


For me, Father Pilarz was The University of Scranton incarnate, preaching and living the Jesuit ideals of cura personalis and serving others, setting the world on fire in his wake. He was intelligent, diligent, passionate, driven, and full of compassion for each member of our University and the city it calls home. Father Pilarz was the head and the heart while sharing in the wonder of each new experience with us students as though it was just as novel to him. I never truly appreciated that until I worked at other institutions that, simply put, didn’t have a Father Pilarz of their own. Thanks to this amazing Jesuit and man for leading the community without which I wouldn’t be becoming the person I had always hoped to be. May he rest in the kind of peace he wished daily to those around him.


Thank you for everything. We’re gonna miss you.


This is such sad news. May he rest in peace.


Rest In Peace Father Pilarz. You will be fondly remembered by us all.


Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.


I am so sorry to hear this.


Rest in peace. he did wonderful things for an amazing school and student body. #scrantonstrong


Thoughts and Prayers for him and his family. I feel assured that a jesuit of this man’s stature is in Good hands. Much Love, Rev. Scott Pilarz. Thank you for all that you have shown us.


May he rest peacefully


Rest in peace Father.


may he Rest In Peace.


RIP to a wonderful person


May you Rest In Peace Fr Pilarz - such a brave , kind , beloved compassionate soul - you will truly be missed .God Bless You and The University of Scranton


Rest In Peace


May he Rest In Peace. Both being in our “freshman” year back in ‘03, he was always understanding of being “new” here, and throughout those 4 years he gave space for our voices to be heard. He was a friendly neighbor in that freshman dorm and approachable president. His kindness was inspiring and his passion for Scranton was infectious! He set a great example for us to become women and men that will set the world on fire. You will be missed Fr. Pilarz.


May he Rest In Peace


I learned more about discipleship in one weekend from Fr. Pilarz and the @scrantonladyroyals road to the final four (2004/05?) than I did in K-8 Catholic school


So very sorry to hear this upsetting news. Sending thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and the University of Scranton community.


Rest In Peace Father Pilarz. You will always be remembered by everyone at the University of Scranton and the Community. God Bless You and hold you in his loving arms forever.
