I remember meeting Padre Laverty during my first frosh week at Queen's. I remember him as a very warm individual who made you feel welcome no matter what your status or station in life. He always had a heart for the International Students and he made every attempt to integrate these students into the Queens Student Body. When I was at Queens I was a member of the Queens Chapter of InterVarsity Christian. Padre Laverty always was available to support us in our various outreaches to the student body. I enjoyed his church services by the waterfront which were open to all students. I appreciated his support for the engineers annual Milk and Cookies Dance since it was a fun time non-alcohol event. Where ever I have travelled through out Canada and the USA I have always shared about my Queens experiences. Padre Laverty presence on campus was always a topic of those conversations. Queen's University has truly lost an Icon and Heaven has gained a saint. " Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God"
