From the euology delivered at Br. Raymund's funeral:
Brother Raymund entered the Brothers of Christian Schools at Barrytown in 1939. He has served in the mission of St. John Baptist de La Salle for 67 years. He received his BS from Catholic University in 1944, earned a Masters Degree in Biology from Fordham University in 1950 and a second Masters Degree in Religious Education/THeology from Emmanuel College in 1972.
Raymund began his teaching career at Good Shepherd School in New York City in 1946. His teaching career brought him to St. Mary's High School in Waltham, Mass., Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School in Brooklyn, New York, and the Ascension School in New York City. He served in many parishes as Director of Religious Education as well as the Office of Religious Education for the Archdiocese of Boston. Raymund also served in Ethiopia for five years.
In Raymund's later years I saw a man who was still excited about learning. He had a burning desire to understand more about cosmology and how that became part of his prayer life. He sought retreat experiences and workshops that would further assist him in this searh or God, God of the universe. His journey over this past year became more problematic due to Alzheimer's. When he returned to Narragansett at the end of December, he indicated that his prayers had been answered; he had come home.
