We share in the sadness of many at the death of John McNeice, Jr. of Canton, Massachusetts.  John served for many years on the Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary Board of Trustees and he and his wife, Margarete, were beloved members of the Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary Community.  Their philanthropy and impact on this Seminary and to many Catholic Charities in the Boston area cannot be overstated.
