Former abbot of St. Bede Academy passes away

Posted by wlpo on May 26, 2015

A long time abbot at St. Bede Academy died over the holiday weekend.

Father Roger Corpus died Sunday at the age of 84. He was abbot at St. Bede from 1990 thru 2003. He graduated from St. Bede Academy and after teaching at the school for several years and then becoming pastor for a church in El Paso, Illinois, he retired back to St. Bede last year.

Visitation is at the St. Bede Abbey Tuesday with a funeral mass and luncheon Wednesday.
