COSTELLO o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-12-28 published
Priest was a driving force behind many area projects
Rev. Patrick COSTELLO also built relationships with developing churches across Africa.
By April ROBINSON, Sun Media, Fri., December 28, 2007
A priest known as the spark behind enduring Saint Thomas community events and projects has died.
Rev. Patrick COSTELLO died of cancer on Christmas Day in Chatham. He was 78.
"Everybody knew Father Pat in Saint Thomas, whether you were Catholic or not," said Steve PETERS, member of provincial parliament for Elgin-Middlesex-London and a former Saint Thomas mayor.
"He had this ability to pull people together for any goal or any project," he said.
One project was the annual Sports Spectacular celebrity dinner in Saint Thomas.
COSTELLO was the driving force getting the event, now in its 30th year, started.
The dinner raises money for the Association for Community Living and the Special Olympics, groups COSTELLO believed in supporting.
"He's always been sports-minded," said Gary CLARKE, an organizer of the dinner and a superintendent of the London District Catholic school board.
CLARKE, who worked with COSTELLO on the dinner for 15 years, said he wants to commemorate him at the next dinner on January 24.
COSTELLO's cousin, Les COSTELLO, founded the Flying Fathers -- a hockey team made up of priests who raise money for charities after quitting the Toronto Maple Leafs to become a priest.
Pat COSTELLO played a bit of hockey himself, said CLARKE.
His true gift was his ability to get the church to extend its reach into the community and beyond, he said.
"He always had a project on the go."
COSTELLO began the annual Saint Anne's festival, a four-day event in June.
He was a strong supporter of minor hockey and soccer.
He also initiated the building of the Saint Anne's Centre in Saint Thomas, now a community hub for weddings, dances and the Sports Spectacular.
COSTELLO also saw a need for a seniors centre so elderly parishioners could just "walk across the street" to church, said CLARKE. So, COSTELLO oversaw construction of the non-profit seniors residence.
"He was able to create a sense of community from the bricks and mortar," said CLARKE.
That sense extended to Africa, where COSTELLO built relationships with developing churches in Zambia, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
"Father Pat always wanted to know how the Catholic church was faring in my part of the world," Telesphore Mpundu, archbishop of Lusaka, Zambia, said in an e-mail.
COSTELLO helped to establish a parish in a remote region of Zambia in 1980 named Saint Anne's after the Saint Thomas church.
"I know there will be a lot of sadness at his death," said John SHERLOCK, former bishop of the London diocese.
"He was brimming with self-confidence and he was gregarious," he said.
After 25 years at Saint Anne's, COSTELLO capped off his career at Sacred Heart parish in Port Lambton and celebrated 50 years of work as a priest in 2004.
Visitation is today at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Chatham from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The funeral, also at Blessed Sacrament, is tomorrow at 11 a.m.

Gentle priest a devoted Maple Leafs fan
By Claire NEARY, Sun Media, Sun., December 30, 2007
Rev. Clarence FITZGERALD, known and loved by many as "Father Fitz," was a quiet, gentle priest, dedicated to his profession, his parishioners -- and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Though he could make it to Toronto for only the occasional Leafs game, FITZGERALD was also a devoted Windsor Spitfires fan and season ticket holder.
For nearly 50 years, he touched the lives of many people across the Roman Catholic Diocese of London in more than a dozen parishes.
FITZGERALD died of cancer, surrounded by his family in Windsor, on December 5, at age 74.
Born in Windsor, FITZGERALD -- known to his family as Father Clare -- was the youngest of five children.
"He was a wonderful brother. My baby brother," said his eldest sister, Margaret MEYER of Brampton.
FITZGERALD always knew he wanted to be a priest and attended Saint Peter's Seminary in London.
He played and enjoyed almost all sports, especially basketball, golf and, of course, hockey.
FITZGERALD was ordained in 1959 and worked in parishes in Delhi, London, Chatham, Woodstock, Saint Marys and Windsor.
He was also the chaplain at Victoria Hospital in London early in his career.
FITZGERALD retired in 2003 but continued to perform weddings, funerals and baptisms as long as he was healthy.
"It was amazing at his funeral to see the number of people from all of the places he'd served," his friend Rev. John COSTELLO said.
"So many people talked about how he'd unknowingly touched their lives."
Above all, Friends said FITZGERALD was a great listener.
"He would never talk much about himself. It was always about the other person," said Mike RICKETTS, a longtime parishioner at St. Alphonsus in Windsor.
"And he always found time, or made time, for the people who needed him."
COSTELLO said many parishioners chose FITZGERALD for confession because he was a kind and gentle listener.
Although he was quiet and sensitive, FITZGERALD was the king of one-liners, his friend Rev. Chris QUINLAN remembered.
"And we always knew never to talk to him during the Leafs games and only to call him in between periods," QUINLAN said, laughing.
He described his friend as a "priest's priest" who loved spending time with his colleagues on the golf course.

COSTELLO- BATKE, Sheila
Runner, conversationalist, financial compliance analyst, wife, mother, sister, friend. Born September 17, 1946, in Dublin. Died July 1 in Toronto of cancer, aged 60.
By Michael CUSSEN, Page L6
'I'm just a girl who can't say no," was usually the way Sheila liked to announce herself. That could explain why when she was diagnosed with cancer she left for Siena, Italy, the next day to take a six-week course in art history.
Sheila was born into a small, cold house in Dublin that held a big, warm family: five girls head-to-toe in one bedroom and four boys in the other. She left school at 15 and later fled to Paris where she worked as an au pair and learned to cook an omelette - but not much else.
She went back to Ireland for a while but then took off again to Toronto's Bloor West Village. In the early seventies, Bloor West Village was a place of brown clothes, corduroy couches and bad hair. But Sheila loved it and immersed herself in the community. Whenever she could, she found herself a stage and sang Gilbert and Sullivan.
For many years, she put her head down and worked hard in the financial sector. With her husband, Dwight, she created a warm, welcoming and loving home. She was incredibly proud of her two children, Emmett and Adrienne, but at times they drove her mad - and she them. As Emmett put it at her funeral: "For some reason, it was always my mom who got the undercooked meals at restaurants, who would flash her chest at the end of a race, who chose to dress up in absurd costumes, or who was the only white woman dancing in the Caribana parade."
Sheila held musical soirees and kitsch auctions to raise money for charity. She also took part in more than 10 marathons. Three years in a row, she persuaded her running Friends to take part in the Cabot Trail 24-hour relay. None of them will ever forget her running up Cape Smokey with a broad smile the week before she was diagnosed with cancer.
Sheila had few vices beyond the odd martini, a tendency to fuss and a need to break into song at inappropriate times. She had a pathological hatred of cats and little time for dogs.
A month before she died, Sheila phoned to ask me to her funeral. For me, it was an awkward conversation, but Sheila never minded awkward situations; she thrived on them. She organized her funeral herself, convinced of the power and importance of the ritual in allowing people to grieve. At one stage in the ceremony, she had arranged for gifts to be brought to the altar. One was a copy of James Joyce's Ulysses. She loved the fact that the last word in the book was the most positive in the English language. It could also have been a summation of Sheila's life: Yes.
Michael CUSSEN is Sheila's brother-in-law and friend.
