It is with great sadness that we report the death of our beloved College Chaplain, Father George Hill, who passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon. Despite a long illness, Fr. George served the Manhattan College community for the past nine years by celebrating weekly Masses in the Chapel, leading meditation sessions, traveling with our student-athletes to pray with them before games, and simply offering his infectious smile to those who needed it most. He will be greatly missed by students, colleagues & alumni alike. We pray that Fr. George may now rest peacefully with the Lord, watching over the Jasper community he loved so dearly.
TODAY there will be a 12:15 p.m. Mass celebrated in the Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers, offered for the eternal repose of Fr. Hill’s soul. A Service of Remembrance will be held on the steps of Smith Auditorium tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 16, at 4 p.m. Funeral arrangements are as follows:
Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers, Manhattan College campus
Saturday, Sept. 17, 3-7 p.m.
Mass of Christian Burial and Interment:
Worcester, Massachusetts (time to be announced).

Re: Father George Hill, College Chaplain
With deep sadness, I write to inform you of the death of our beloved Chaplain, Father George Hill.
Father Hill passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital, where he was in hospice care. We are grateful to have had him as our campus pastor for the past nine years. He was a wise counselor, a gentle spiritual guide, and a loving friend to students and colleagues alike. Father George will be sorely missed in our daily life on campus; but we take comfort in our faith that he is present among us whenever we follow his example and “do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8).
Today’s Mass at 12:15 pm will be celebrated in the Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers and offered for the eternal repose of Fr. Hill’s soul.
In addition, a Service of Remembrance will be held on the steps of Smith Auditorium tomorrow, Friday, September 16, at 4:00 p.m.
Arrangements are as follows:
The Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers, Manhattan College campus
Saturday, September 17, 3:00-7:00 p.m.
Mass of Christian Burial and Interment:
Worcester, Massachusetts (time to be announced)
Thank you for your prayers for Father Hill and his family.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.
Brennan O’Donnell, Ph.D.
