OBITUARY
Rev. Conrad Somerville, OFM Conv., 85

A funeral Mass was offered Nov. 20 at the Franciscan Church of the Assumption, Syracuse, for Rev. Conrad Somerville, who died Nov. 21. He was 85 and had been a Conventual Franciscan Friar for 61 years and a priest for 59.

A native of Cohoes, he taught in Costa Rica, Pittsburgh and Utica and at Bishop Scully High School in Amsterdam and Our Lady of Angels School in Albany. He was an associate pastor in Ontario, Canada, and pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Tribes Hill, and spent a number of years as sacramental minister at St. Francis Chapel in Albany. He moved to Syracuse 15 years ago to serve at The Franciscan Place in Destiny USA.

Father Somerville's ministry took him well beyond the boundaries of the Albany Diocese, but he dedicated much of his time to parishes and schools "back home." Now, he is truly at home in the arms of God.

Interment was in Assumption Cemetery in Syracuse.
