Rev Francis X Coan OSA

Francis was born in Lawrence MA in 1900. He entered the novitiate at Villanova PA in 1919, and was ordained to the priesthood there by Cardinal Dougherty on August 29, 1926.

Fr Coan taught biology at Villanova College until 1938, when he was transferred to St Rita's High School in Chicago IL. In 1940, he was assigned to our parish on Staten Island NY and five years later, he entered the US Army as a chaplain.

In 1950, Fr Coan was appointed prior at Holy Rosary in Lawrence. Three years later, he was named prior and pastor of St John's in Schaghticoke NY.

Fr Coan later returned to Villanova, because of ill health. He died there on December 18, 1957 at the age of 57. He is buried in the community cemetery at Villanova.
