We received this message from Marj Humphrey of the Maryknoll Lay Missioners: "It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform you of the passing of Jack Connell, returned Maryknoll Lay Missioner Class of 1981 and Maryknoll Affiliate from the New York Subway Chapter. Jack went home to God this morning (Nov. 2), at his home in the Bronx, New York, where he and his wife, Yvette have lived for many years since their return to the US. Jack and Yvette served as lay missioners in Tanzania, Palestine, and China and were active, upon their return, with the Maryknoll Affiliates. Throughout his life, Jack was a non pretentious, gentle and other-directed man. His wife Yvette is much like him in that regard.
