From those who knew him.....

Father Jack - Rest in Peace
Father Jack reflects on the life of Father Darin Didier. "Real Men Love Mary and Prayer: Fr Didier was, above all, a man of spirituality and frequent conversation with God and the Virgin. I often saw him carrying a Rosary and walking briskly around Mary's Grotto-praying! He would run and pray, and sit in the chapel before the Blessed Sacrament. He made his life a prayer, an offering and continual communion with God and Mary…How can you pray more like this man?"

Living next to a Saint
Father Greg reviews a child's view of Father Darin's life - "So that's what a seminarian is supposed to be like!"
