Father Ralph Boisvert

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Father Ralph Boisvert, age 79, who died on Saturday, October 12, 2019.

Father Boisvert was born in Biddeford, the son of Herman and Laurence Boisvert and attended St. Louis High School. In 1962, he married Claudia Hall and, for many years, operated his own business in Fryeburg.   He was active in the Church and was among the parishioners involved in the establishment of St. Elizabeth Ann Church in the town.

Upon his wife’s death in 1994, he answered the call to the priesthood and was accepted as a seminarian for the Diocese of Portland. He was ordained by Bishop Joseph Gerry, O.S.B, on May 15, 1999, and began serving at the Parish of the Holy Spirit in Waterville, then at St. Augustine and St. Andrew parishes in Augusta, which became part of St. Michael Parish in 2007.

After retiring from active ministry, Father Boisvert served when needed at the Togus VA Medical Center.

Please pray for the consolation of his family and many friends.

May Fr. Ralph’s soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
