GSRRE mourns the passing of Rev. Kohn, GSRRE Adjunct Professor

Dear Members of the Fordham Family, It is my very sad duty to report the death of Rev. Marguerite Mary Kohn, adjunct faculty in the distance learning program of the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education. She was shot and wounded Thursday at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, where she worked, in Ellicott City, Maryland, and died Saturday at a hospital in Baltimore. Rev. Kohn’s colleague, Brenda Brewington, an employee of St. Peter's, was killed in the same attack. It is heartbreaking to lose these two women, whose lives were dedicated to helping others, in an instant of brutality. I ask that you join with me in praying for Rev. Kohn and Ms. Brewington, for their families and colleagues, and for the faculty and students of GSRRE. We will keep the University community informed about funeral services and memorials for Rev. Kohn. Sincerely, Joseph M. McShane, S.J. Note: The above e-mail address is a one-way mail service for broadcast message only. It cannot accept incoming e-mails.
