Not sure what to say?

Best teacher I had at St. Bernard. He had a big impact on a lot of people. Rest In Peace.

Father McKenna was a kind and living person. So easy to talk to. As a teenager that was hard to find. Prayers for his family.

Remember him from his early days at SBHS as an enthusiastic Latin teacher who could both teach and speak the language.
Requiem aeternum dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei.
Requiescat in pace, Pater McKenna.

Father Frank was a compassionate and caring priest. He was a source of constant comfort during the illness and death of my son. I can never thank him enough for all the prayers and concern he gave our family during this difficult time. He truly was a man of God and I will forever be thankful and grateful for his friendship and love. God Bless you Father Frank, RIP

I had him for first period Latin One class at 8am back in 1984...oh it was sooo cold in that classroom in winter before the heat got circulating...he would joke in Latin "semper ubi sub ubi"..... Requiescant in pacem!

It is with wonderful fond memories of Fr Frank that my family and I share. He was not only a colleague at St Bernard High but a close friend. We shared countless dinners and happy times together. Frank not only taught my children, he was their friend and mentor. He will be missed. Such a great sense of humor as well as a very holy man. Rest In Peace. The Whitford family

Father you shall be missed by so many. You have touched many lives making them richer. It was good seeing you at St. Bernards class of 64 55 class reunion.
The Lord be with you.
