Father Mike McCaffery is being remembered as a unique character, a study in shattering stereotypes.
He’s the sports fan-priest famous for marrying NHL icon Wayne Gretzky and his wife, as well as the beloved pastor who learned sign language to serve the deaf community. He enjoyed a gourmet meal as much as a peanut butter sandwich and a long, fast drive.
He’s the natural leader tapped for positions with great responsibility, and the doting uncle, trusted friend, and the pastor who would listen and comfort anyone ministered to addicts and the vulnerable. However, he had a singularity of purpose.
