We all knew then, and still know, what "The Padre" meant to us as students and to Queen's. A personal memory: it was the practice then for Presidents of clubs and organizations at Queen's to be invited, in turn, to read the lesson at Sunday serice in Grant Hall. Padre Laverty approached me as President of Nursing Science and told me he knew I was Roman Catholic, and that he would be glad to make any accommodations needed to allow me to take part. None were needed, but his great thoughfulness and kindenss in thinking of it remain a happy memory of him.
