In Memoriam

Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. (Lk 23:42)


Catholic Diocese of Wilmington

Fr. Leonard Klein (August 4, 1945–December 4, 2019), Chaplain of the Society of Catholic Scholars of Delaware, and priest in the Diocese of Wilmington, passed away on the morning of December 4, 2019 after a battle with cancer. Fr. Klein will be remembered by everyone who knew him as both tremendously learned and unfailingly kind. The Society of Catholic Scholars of Delaware especially appreciated his advice and his generosity regarding that most precious of commodities, time. We pray with confidence for the repose of his soul and for the comfort of his family and friends. It is a sad time for all of us, but Fr. Klein would be the first to remind us that Christ is our sure hope.
–Katherin Rogers, President
Society of Catholic Scholars of Delaware
