The CTSA prays for Alicia Marill who died on January 23.
Eternal rest grant unto Alicia, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Sr. Gloria L. Schaab, SSJ's letter to Alicia Marill's colleagues, students, and alumni at Barry University follows:
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death last evening (1/23/2023) of Alicia Marill, DMin. Dr. Marill faithfully served the Department of Theology and Philosophy for more than twenty years, most notably as Doctor of Ministry Director from 1999 until her retirement. In addition to her vast contributions to the Department and to Barry University, Dr. Marill was tirelessly active in the Archdiocese of Miami and the community of Miami. Among many other significant and extensive contributions, Dr. Marill was the founder and president of Amor en Accion, supporting projects of education, nutrition, health, evangelization and reforestation in Haiti. She served as a board member of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States and was elected a representative of the United States Catholic Church to the first Congreso Americano Misionero held in Parana, Argentina.
Please remember Alicia’s family and friends in this time of deep mourning.
Sister Gloria L. Schaab, SSJ
