Rev. John Sproul, R.I.P.
Saint Martin
of Tours
La Mesa, California
John McCauley Sproul was born in Glasgow, Scotland, on June 1, 1934, the second of four sons to William and Margaret Mary. From his earliest years he always wanted to be a priest, and coming to America in the mid 1950’s, he was ordained for the Diocese of San Diego on February 9, 1963. He attended Immaculate Heart Seminary in El Cajon. He served, and was much loved, in many parishes, before becoming Pastor of Saint Martin of Tours, La Mesa, in 1990. He was a great friend and neighbor to Holy Trinity. Father John went ‘Home to God’ on Wednesday (March 23, 2005) after a long illness. He was the last surviving sibling of his family, and has many nieces and nephews. He will forever be loved and missed by all who knew him.

May he rest in peace.
