Robert Quagan, husband of Chrstine Quagan,chairwoman of Una Voce Boston, passed away Saturday evening, on the Feast of the Assumption. His Requiem Mass was celebrated this morning at Mary Immaculate of Lourdes in Newton Highlands, Ma. by Fr. Charles Higgins with Fr. Joseph Santos of Providence as Deacon and Fr. Thomas Kocik of Fall River as Subdeacon.
In addition to his efforts to promote the traditional Mass, Rob was one of the men who revitalized the Holy Name Society at Holy Trinity Church in Boston. At a time – pre-Summorum Pontificum – when any overt efforts to promote the TLM were regarded with fear and suspicion by the chancery, the HNS was an important organization for men of a traditionally-Catholic orientation in the Archdiocese to meet and deepen their faith. Trained as an architect, Rob was an especially eloquent exponent of traditional Catholic church architecture and was a stalwart in the long struggle to try and save Holy Trinity Church.
Rob was a true Catholic Gentleman, a good father and husband, and a loyal friend. His life exemplified the Christian Virtues, and especially those of Fortitude, Faith, Hope, and Charity during his three-year illness. In your charity please pray for the repose of his soul, and for the intentions of his family.
Requiescat in pace.
