Reverend Monsignor Thomas Patrick Guinan, 80, of Niantic, died Friday (Aug. 21, 1998) in West Hartford. Monsignor was born in Hartford on April 21, 1918, son of the late Martin and Delia Guinan. He attended St. Thomas Seminary in Bloomfield and St. Mary Seminary in Baltimore, MD. He was ordained to the priesthood in St. Joseph Cathedral in Hartford on March 17, 1945, by His Excellency Bishop Henry O'Brien. He was assigned to St. Michael Parish, Waterville, then served in St. Mary Parish, Greenwich and St. Patrick Parish, Bridgeport.

He was named the second Pastor of St. Michael Parish, Greenwich, where he served until his retirement in 1993. Monsignor had a wonderful ministry to the youth of the church for many years. In his five decades as a priest he served as an educator, administrator, prison chaplain and pastor. During those years he also served on numerous boards and commissions for the Diocese of Bridgeport. He was honored by Pope John Paul II in 1983, when he was named Prelate of Honor with the title of Monsignor. Survivors include a brother, Joseph and his wife, Ann Marie Guinan of Farmington; several nieces and nephews, and many cherished friends.
