Fr. Don Talafous OSB ‘48

1989 Fr. Walter Reger Distinguished Alumnus
Saint John's University monk, Theology Professor
and Alumni Chaplain 

Don TalafousFr. Don Talafous, OSB, has a memory bank as large as Ft. Knox.  Or so it seems. The former university chaplain and theology professor can recall the names of hundreds, if not thousands, of alumni when they greet him on campus, in the Minneapolis Skyway, or in some foreign land.  Fr. Don always made it a point to get to know students and continued the friendship and correspondence over the years. His alumni friends often honor him by asking him to preside at their weddings and officiate at the baptisms of their children.
