Brother Jeffrey Calligan, RIP

Brother Jeffrey Calligan, FSC, of the District of San Francisco New Orleans, died on February 15, 2019, at the Saint Paul’s Retirement Community, Covington, Louisiana. He was 79 years old.

Brother Jeffrey was known both internationally and throughout the Lasallian Region of North America for his many contributions to the mission. Brother Jeffrey taught for nearly 30 years at the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies (1988-2017). Brother William Mann, FSC, a current Buttimer instructor who was part of the group that founded Buttimer in 1986, shared, “Whether he was regaling us with tales of his many trips abroad or imparting his passion for all things Lasallian — and especially his fondness for the growing association of laity and Brothers for mission — Jeff was a vital life-force who inspired countless Lasallians over the course of thirty years as a presenter at the Buttimer Institute. I’ll miss him.”

Brother Jeffrey also served for four years (2000-2004) at Christian Brothers Conference as director of Formation and Religious Life Services, a role that focused on formation and catechetics.
