  1. I was a chaplain at the Edmonton General Hospital in the early 1990s. I met Fr. Mike McCaffery for the first time while he was visiting his mother who was a patient there.
    Later, when a Catholic friend of my family died, his family invited me to lead the memorial service, even though I am not Catholic. They did ask me to see if any Catholic priest would be willing to take part. Fr. McCaffery volunteered to do so. I was pleasantly surprised with the way he accepted me as a non-Catholic, female chaplain and my leadership of the service. I appreciated the support that he gave to me and the family at that time.
    Rest in Peace.

  2. I will never forget the good Fr. Mike did for me: How he took me to see Pope John Paul II at the Grey Nuns Regional Center in about 1984. It was a once in a lifetime privilege to be able to talk with the Pope. He drove me there, waited for me, and drove me home too. Whatever failings Fr. Mike may have had I will always remember his great kindness to me.
