In Memoriam

Casper J. Miller, SJ, Nepal Jesuit and Collaborator of SCNs with a sense of great humility and joy

With much gratitude and fond remembrance, the SCNs of Nepal bid farewell to Father Casper J. Miller, SJ, who passed on to his heavenly reward on Jan. 15, 2023, in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth were so fortunate and privileged to be closely associated with Father Cap from the time Sisters stepped into Nepal. He was truly a spiritual guru, friend and role model to many SCNs.

He has served the Nepal Nazareth Society as its president and board member for many years. His contributions to the SCNs in Nepal will be remembered forever. We express lovingly our deep sense of gratitude to him and pray to our loving God that his soul enjoys eternal bliss in Heaven.

Father Casper J. Miller, SJ, was born on Dec. 13, 1933, in Cleveland, Ohio, USA and came to Nepal in 1958 when he was 25. He was ordained in 1964 at St. Paul’s Church, Kurseong, India. He was lovingly called Father Cap or Father Cappy. He spent 65 years of his life serving the people of remote and urban Nepal.

“My beloved Nepal” (Mero pyara Nepal) were his last words, according to sources. He truly loved and gave his life for the poor and the rich, young and old, and beyond caste and creed in the Himalayas of Nepal.
