Christian Brothers University and the De La Salle Brothers in Memphis will offer a Memorial Mass commemorating the passing of Brother Jeffrey Gros on September 28. Father Michael Joyce will be the celebrant.
The Memorial Mass will take place at CBU’s Stritch Chapel on at 10:30 a.m. followed by a reception. Brother Jeffrey was a native of Memphis and a long time lecturer at CBU and the Distinguished Professor of Ecumenical and Historical Theology at Memphis Theological Seminary. Most recently, he was Catholic Studies Scholar in Residence at Lewis University as well as an adjunct professor at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. He died on August 12 following a relatively short bout of pancreatic cancer. May He Rest In Peace!
The CBU Community — faculty, staff, alums and current students —are most welcome to attend, as well as the many people who came to know Brother Jeffrey over the years.
