Msgr. Kevin O'Neill `53 Student Assistance Program

As a young man, Msgr. Kevin O’Neill ‘53 was formed in Franciscan values during his four years at Timon. In the decades that followed, there was no greater spiritual and financial supporter of Timon than Msgr. O’Neill— who continued that support with a substantial gift outlined in his will. Just as St. Francis lived a life devoted to the poor and marginalized, Msgr. O’Neill’s name lives on as testimony to the generosity of our Timon community.

Going forward, all scholarships and financial aid offered by Timon will be collected and organized under this new program. The families of every young man who walks through the doors of 601 McKinley Pkwy will now be better able to understand every scholarship and financial aid opportunity available. This reorganization also helps us find ways to quantify and then close the gap between what it costs to educate a young man—and what that young man’s family can afford to pay for that education.

As a community we are indebted to Msgr. O’Neill— for his six decades of priestly service, his final gift which allows us to help so many more young men, and most importantly his humble, Franciscan example.
