Rest in Peace Fr. Paul. Your homilies were spot-on. Thank you for caring about our CCOP.

I've been a member of CCOP for 57 years, and so have seen a lot of pastors. Paul has been a wonderful guide, teacher, and friend. As noted above he especially took on outreach issues. One grandson is working on his Eagle Scout program at CCOP, and has received lots of encouragement from Fr. Paul.

I will miss him a lot, but he and Fr. Dan Danielson must be having a grand time catching up on stories. God bless them both!

Father Paul was a long time friend to my son. I personally had the pleasure of meeting Father Paul on many occasions he was a truly inspiring man. For many years he would always remember my birthday and send well wishes. I hope he is at peace and knows how much he has ment to so many people.

Father Paul Minnihan,

Pax Christi semper vobiscum. I wish somebody had notified me of your funeral. I am truly shocked. I cannot understand why somebody didn't heal you. Shocking! I know there is another saint in Biblical Heaven.I pray for your canonization. Please pray for prolife laws, Saint Paul. Jesus, please give Father Paul Grace to work many miracles from Heaven. Teaching someone how to love God and others is the greatest gift you can give anyone. I pray for a Roman Catholic Theocracy. This planet needs God more than ever. These are very serious times indeed.

In Christ's Infinite Love,

your friend Nathan Knight
