Catholic University Mourns Passing of Junior Lacrosse Player Brendan Englert

On April 25, Brendan Englert, a junior mechanical engineering major and member of the men’s lacrosse team from Fayettville, N.Y., passed away, following an April 22 accident involving a motor vehicle in northern Virginia. The University community held a mass for Brendan and his family the following evening. Brendan was 2nd in career points at Catholic as an attackman.

“It is our sad duty to mourn the loss of a young member of our University community,” said University President John Garvey. “Please keep Brendan, his family, friends, and teammates in your prayers at this painful time. May they and we find comfort in our faith that promises eternal life and in the knowledge that Brendan has been entrusted to God’s loving care.”
