  1. We will all miss Fred very much. His knowledge of St. Paul of the Cross was amazing and inspiring. We all learned, not just about Paul of the Cross but also about the Church and the times that Paul lived in. We also learned much about the priest..Fred Sucher. What brought him to the Passionists and what the community meant to him. I feel that I have lost a teracher, priest and friend.
