  • FATHER MICHAEL DOYLE Obituary Guest Book "Fr. Doyle was a remarkable priest who had a great influence..." - Michael Brehl View Sign
    FATHER MICHAEL DOYLE, CSSp 1932 - 2015 Father Michael Doyle of the Spiritan Province of TransCanada died peacefully on the afternoon of July 16, 2015. At the time Father Michael was a resident of the Houses of Providence, Scarborough where he had resided since April of 2014. He is predeceased by his parents and his sister, Ann Boland of Ireland. Father Michael is survived by his sisters, Olivia O'Meara and Oonagh Brennan of Ireland, as well as Mary Kelly of Australia and numerous nieces and nephews. Father Michael was born December 18, 1932 in Cork City, Ireland. He made his first profession as a Spiritan on September 8, 1950 and was ordained to the priesthood on July 12, 1959. During his 56 years as a priest he served in a variety of teaching, administrative and pastoral works in Canada, Papua New Guinea, Italy and Australia. First assigned to Neil McNeil High School in Toronto in 1960, Father Michael became School Principal in 1965. From 1968 to 1971 Father Michael served as Director of Student Services at Toronto's Centennial College. In 1972 Father Michael became the Superior of the Spiritan District of Ontario and later became the first Provincial Superior of the newly founded Spiritan Province of TransCanada. Father Doyle left from that position to take up pastoral work in Papua New Guinea, a service that was interrupted by a call to serve from 1986-1993 as First Assistant to the Spiritan Superior General in Rome. Returning to Canada in 1993, Father Michael served as the Associate Pastor of St. Joseph's Parish in Scarborough before returning to serve once again in Aitape and Wewak, Papua New Guinea and later in Australia. In 1998 Father Michael returned to Canada once again and took up pastoral work at St. Joseph's Parish in Scarborough until 2001 when he became the Director of Vocation Ministry for the Spiritans in Canada. In 2008 Father Doyle retired to the Laval Community in Toronto and as his fight with Alzheimer's disease became more challenging, he moved to La Salle Manor and then the Houses of Providence where he lived out the remainder of his days. Father Michael was known for his love of education and his work in the missions. Father Michael made many great friends during his lifetime, many of whom remained so loyal to him in his later years. He will be missed by his Spiritan confreres, family and friends.

 Unusual Notice....







IF McSWEENEY DIES 
        _______________

VENGEANCE PLANNED

Many Sinn Feiners in England are said to be determined to wreak vengeance in the event of Alderman McSweeney's death. Detectives are closely safeguarding prominent people and public buildings.
The newspapers are preparing obituaries of Mr. Lloyd George and Mr. Bonar Law fearing that they will be assassinated. It is presumed that in the event of his death, Alderman McSweeney's body will be sent to Ireland to be buried in the area reserved for "martyrs", where lie Alderman MacCurtain, a former Lord Mayor of Cork, who was murdered by masked men, and Shamus Quirke.
Quirke was buried in Cork amid remarkable scenes. A thousand took part in a military procession in khaki and green uniforms. For this they liable to instant arrest. At the graveside three volleys were fired - a most serious offence.
The police and military have withdrawn from the streets and the Sinn Feiners are directing the traffic.
