The WernetsThe College has learned the tragic news that alumnus Matt Wernet (’93) died on August 22, following acute respiratory distress stemming from COVID-19. Please pray for the repose of his soul, as well as for the care and consolation of his wife, Mary Jo (Formolo ’91), their four children, and their entire family. A GiveSendGo page has been established to help the family with expenses, as well as a meal train.

Mr. Wernet’s wake will take place on Friday, August 27, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Oakwood Family Funeral Home & Crematory, 2585 Stillwater Road East, Maplewood, Minnesota. The Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11:00 a.m. at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 535 Thomas Ave., St. Paul. Mass will be preceded by a Visitation at 10:00 a.m. and followed by a luncheon in the church hall at noon, with the burial to follow, around 1:30 p.m., at St. Mary’s Cemetery, 2980 N Helen St., North St. Paul.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a financial contribution to help defray the expenses associated with this unfortunate event. 


Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
