Fr. William Gormley, C.M. died peacefully at 7:45 a.m., today, May 2, 2013, at St. Catherine’s Infirmary in Germantown. While his health declined rapidly over the last few weeks, his strong faith and deep desire to return to the Lord increased with each passing day.
Bill will be missed greatly by his family, confreres and many friends. Please remember him in your prayers giving thanks for his priestly commitment throughout his life as a Vincentian in service of God’s people.
Funeral details will follow.
Father Gormley was such a gift to me while he celebrated Mass in the community of Hampton Bays, NY. I so looked forward to his homilies, always intelligent and thought provoking. I will always treasure the memory of an evening he shared at our home, contributing to a lively discussion with a local minister and a few Dominican Sisters. He will be missed, RIP.
