Born Thomas Curran January 12, 1899 in Woburn, Massachusetts, he went to the Passionist Preparatory College, Baltimore, Maryland at thirteen. On August 13, 1917 he professed his vows as a Passionist. His religious name was Albert. He was ordained on June 14, 1924. He offered to go to the mission in China but due to his intellectual abilities and physical liabilities he was declined permission. The life of a professor was considered more appropriate. After two years as a professor he was a preacher of parish missions for another two years. Yet he had to give that up when his health was in danger. Then after a rest he was named retreat director at Jamaica, New York. There he developed a serious nephritic condition which resulted in his death after six years.
