Fr. John Van Rut
1961 to 1968

Father John Van Rut came to Canada in 1951, and was for many years the bursar of the S.CJ. Seminary. In 1961 he came to Osgoode. He lived a simple life and was his own cook and handyman. Remaining a farmer at heart, he often helped some parisioners in the busy hay- ing season. When he became 80, he returned to Holland, and turned 90 in good health at the end of 2003.
