Father John Corredato was diagnosed with GBM in September 2007 and lost his battle in April 2008. Father John meant a lot to my husband and me. He welcomed us into his church with open arms and presided over my confirmation in the Catholic faith. Most importantly, Father was with us on the most important day of our lives: he married us on September 2, 2006. What I remember most about Father John was how special he was to his parishioners. The children always ran up to him after mass to give him a hug. He couldn't go anywhere in town without people coming up to him to say hello and to chat. He always had time for a kind word. We are honored to have known him as a great priest and a true friend.
