Father Powis was a spiritual & community legend of Bushwick with a fierce commitment to justice.
I loved him b/c he was unafraid to challenge policy & decisions made by elected officials.
Unbought & unbossed is why he’s so beloved. May he rest in peace.
RIP the irreplaceable Fr. John Powis, who turned a gentle smile, a clerical collar under a flannel shirt, and quiet but cajoling voice into tools for justice in Brooklyn, inspiring and comforting all who knew him.
