College: Went to Regina Cleri Seminary, Saskatchewan, Canada, graduating in 1959.

Contributor: Rev. Powers was a coordinator for the Junior Parochial Football and Basketball League of the Catholic Schools of Pueblo. He dealt with top officials, coaches, and athletes who went on to higher levels of achievement or are still active today...These individuals represented themselves and Pueblo quite admirably...Some of these names are quite familiar to Pueblo sports enthusiasts, namely:  Walt Clay, Sam Corsentino, Dan Rosales, Jack Datz, Pat and Frank Gomez, Paul and Jim Gradishar, Mike Marchovecchio, Craig, Gary and Terry Lown...Under John's direction, hard work and total involvement, an annual Parochial Basketball Invitational Tournament evolved that became the most outstanding tournament of its type in Colorado for grad school participants...The Pueblo Catholic grade schools along with various Catholic grade schools throughout Southern Colorado gathered at Roncalli High School Gymnasium for three days to determine a tournament champion and witnessed by large crowds...Through his diligence this annual affair became the pinnacle for grade school basketball competition...As if his parish and league duties were not enough, Father Power served as Chaplain for the Pueblo Catholic Alumni Association, a support group of dedicated men for athletics at Pueblo Catholic High School and later, Roncalli and Seton High School...The Association still maintains the operation of the Junior Parochial Basketball League for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students of the Catholic Parishes of the Pueblo Diocese.  The League has been named "The Father Power Memorial League" in his honor.

Father John Power was killed on September 9, 1969, at the age of 38 in an airplane crash while returning from his beloved homeland, Ireland.
