Fr John Sullivan SJ
On the night of February 19th, 1933, Fr John Sullivan SJ breathed his last in St Vincent’s Nursing Home, Dublin. Thirty-seven years earlier he had converted to Catholicism, and four years later he entered the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits). Much of his priestly life was spent in Clongowes Wood College, Co. Kildare, where he had a reputation for sanctity among the schoolboys and the many local people he came in contact with. In 1960 he was declared a Servant of God. He was declared ‘Venerable’ by Pope Francis in November 2014. In April 2016 Pope Francis approved a decree that authenticated a miracle attributed to Fr Sullivan, thereby approving his beatification.
