Obituary

Rev. Father Armand R. Neault, 92, went to his eternal reward in the early morning hours of Saturday, October 26, 2019, at St. Andre Health Care in Biddeford.

Armand Robert Neault was born to Edmond and Delphine (Plamondon) J. Neault on April 20, 1927, in Biddeford, Maine. After attending Catholic schools in Biddeford, Armand completed his high school and college at St. Charles Seminary (1941-1946), in Sherbrooke, Quebec. He then completed his philosophy and theology at St. Paul’s Seminary (1946-1952), Ottawa, Ontario.

The Most Reverend Daniel J. Feeney, the Seventh Bishop of Portland, ordained Armand to the priesthood on June 7, 1952, at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, in Portland.

Fr. Neault served in the following assignments: Parochial Vicar (Assistant Priest/Curate), Sacred Heart Parish, Portland (Summer 1952), Holy Rosary Parish, Caribou (1952-1955), St. John’s Parish, Rumford (1955-1965), St. Ignatius Parish, Sanford (1965-66), St. Augustine Parish, Augusta (1966-1968); Pastor at: Our Lady of the Lakes, Oquossoc (1968-1973), St. Andrew’s Parish, Augusta (1973-1979), Notre Dame de Lourdes Parish, Skowhegan (1979-1984), Notre Dame Parish, Springvale (1984-2000, at which time he retired from full-time ministry; he continued to provide priestly ministry and coverage). In addition, Fr. Neault also served the diocese in the following capacities: Vicar Forane (Dean) at: Southern Kennebec & Knox Deanery (1976-1979), Somerset Deanery (1979-1982; renewed 1982-1984); Chaplain – Knights of Columbus at: Somerset Council #2089, Skowhegan (1980-1984), Rev.

Poirier Council, Council #2755, Springvale (1985-1993; reappointed 1993-1997); Chaplain – Daughters of Isabella for: Notre Dame de Lourdes Circle, Skowhegan (1980-1984) and Mater Circle #389, Sanford (1985- present) and Committee for the Continuing Education of Priests (1978-1981; reappointed 1982-1985).

Fr. Neault was described as a “model of priestly commitment,” by Bishop Joseph Gerry, OSB; and on the occasion of his 65th anniversary of ordination, Bishop Deeley wrote, “Thank you for responding to the Lord’s call to you those many years ago and for your perseverance, your fidelity your generosity and for your generous service to the holy people of God who have been placed in your care.”

Father Neault also had an adventurous side that included activities such as skiing, scuba diving, riding his motorcycle and getting his pilot’s license.

In addition to his parents, Father Neault was predeceased by his brother, Roger Neault. Father Neault is lovingly remembered by his sister, Claudette LaVerriere and her husband, Adrien, of Florida; his nephews, Marc LaVerriere and his wife Lorie, Richard Neault and his wife, Gloria, Jerry Neault and his wife, Louise, and Daniel Neault and his wife, Mary Jo; his nieces, Ann Sobil and her husband, Jeffrey, Patricia Lessard and Therese Neault; his cousins, Arthur Neault along with many other cousins in Canada; and his longtime friend and caregiver, Vivian Shirley.

My condolences to Father Neaults family. I attended church with my family at St Andrews Parish in Augusta when Father Neault was the priest there . I was a teenager and he was absolutely wonderful. I will remember his love for the Word and his kindness, patience and sense of humor ! Everyone loved him ...he had a full congregation so he was the real deal.

Fr. Neault was a holy priest and we have many fond memories of him. We are friends with his sister Claudette and husband Andy, when they would come to Maine in the summer we had him over for a meal and he was so gracious. RlP pray for us.

My heart shed tears when I heard of Father,s passing. He was such a wonderful man and had such a loving way about him. One Christmas my husband and daughters sang Old Holy Night in Latin at mass. It brought Father to tears and the congregation as well. After Mass he came to me and said what a Christmas gift as he hugged me. This was our gift to our beloved Father Neault.
My daughters at the time were 9 and 14. Heaven is a little happier since Father Neault arrived.
