May 29, 2012 - Cardinal O'Malley on the passing of Patrick Roche*

"Patrick Roche was an exemplary model of devotion to family, faith and community.   He was also an important civic leader and, with his family, an extraordinarily generous benefactor of the Archdiocese of Boston, particularly our Catholic schools, the City of Boston and many charitable causes.  We extend our sincere condolences to his wife Barbara and the entire Roche family.  May Pat be blessed with the gift of eternal peace in the presence of the Lord.
