RAFTIS, Rev. James Ambrose, C.S.B.
Died peacefully in his sleep at Saint Michael's Hospital after a brief illness. Father RAFTIS was born August 24, 1922 in Arthur, Ontario one of five sons of James Stephen RAFTIS and Blanche (DINNEEN) RAFTIS. After graduating from Arthur High School, Ambrose was accepted into St. Basil's Novitiate and made his religious profession in 1941. As a seminarian, Ambrose was directed toward the social sciences and history. Though somewhat removed from the usual Basilian institutional academic programs, this area proved to be congenial to his abilities. He finished at the top of the honour course in political science and economics at the University of Toronto and the following year earned and M.A. in economics. Ambrose RAFTIS was ordained to the priesthood June 29, 1948. From 1949-1954 rather than accepting a scholarship from Harvard University, he pursued a doctoral course in the new program initiated at Laval University that attempted to wed traditional philosophical and theological studies to the social sciences. He then acquired a doctorate in medieval history from Cambridge University. Father RAFTIS became dedicated to medieval social history and the training of a number of professors who became prominent in leading Catholic and non-Catholic Universities. A dozen books, scores of lectures and learned papers complemented this teaching. Recognition was given to his accomplishments by election as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and a Member of the American Historical Association. Administrative obligations inevitably followed too as Father RAFTIS was elevated to the post of president of the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies, 1979-1988. Ambrose retired from teaching in 1990 and continued to reside at Saint Michael's College, Toronto. For health reasons he moved to the Cardinal Flahiff Centre, Anglin House, Toronto in 2006. Father RAFTIS is predeceased by his parents and brothers Leo, Francis, John and Eddie. To his sisters-in-law Adele, Jean and Olivene and his nieces, nephews and Friends the Basilian Fathers offer their condolences and prayers. Friends may call at the Cardinal Flahiff Basilian Centre Chapel, 95 Saint_Joseph Street, Toronto on Thursday, April 22 from 2: 00-5:00 p.m. with a Vigil Service at 7: 30 p.m. The Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated in the chapel on Wednesday, April 23 at 10 a.m. Interment in the Basilian plot at Holy Cross Cemetery, Thornhill, Ontario.
