The Rev. Angus N. Carney, 95, an Augustinian priest who taught theology at Monsignor Bonner High School in Drexel Hill from 1970 to 1980, died Thursday, Sept. 13, of heart failure at St. Thomas of Villanova Monastery in Villanova.

Before retiring in 1993, he also served as a parish priest in Philadelphia and its suburbs.

Born in Marcus Hook, Father Carney graduated from the Augustinian Academy in Staten Island, N.Y., in 1935, earned a bachelor's degree in philosophy at what is now Villanova University in 1940, and was ordained a priest in 1943.

After teaching and working in parishes in Chicago, New York City, and Washington, he earned a master's in religious studies at Villanova in 1962, a spokeswoman for the Augustinian community at the university said.

He was associate pastor at St. Denis Church in Havertown in 1967-68 and in the Trenton Diocese before beginning his term at Monsignor Bonner.

From 1983 until his 1993 retirement, Father Carney was a priest at St. Rita of Cascia parish in Philadelphia, St. Genevieve parish in Flourtown, and, for more than eight years, St. Augustine in Philadelphia.

Father Carney is survived by a nephew and four nieces.

A visitation was set from 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17, at the Church of St. Thomas on the campus of Villanova University before a 7:30 p.m. Funeral Mass. Burial is to be at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18, in the Augustinian plot at Calvary Cemetery, Conshohocken.
