Founding Chaplain

Reverend Richard Rieman, Nov. 8, 1925-Dec. 2, 2019

Dear Montrose Friends and Families,

Our beloved founding chaplain of 40 years, Reverend Richard Rieman, has been called home to heaven.

Fr. Dick's love and joy are legend. While he was unable to join us this fall, he remained in close contact with his messages and prayers. A presence on our campus and in our lives for four decades, he has inspired our faith, hope and love in ways too numerous to count. 
No one has passed through these hallways, whether in Brookline, Westwood, Natick or Medfield, without being blessed by his prayers and warm smile. 
Fr. Dick had a wonderful gift for making each person feel like the most important person in the world. He was a faithful priest, whose holiness and example made it so easy for us to come to know the love of Jesus Christ. We are grateful for his fidelity to Montrose, our students, faculty, and families these past 40 years.  

With warmest regards,

Karen E. Bohlin, Head of Montrose School
