In memoriam

Since January 2019, a list of recently deceased clergy and Religious has been maintained at the front page of this website. As the list lengthens, it seems better that a shorter list of entries remain on the front page, but the full list be carried to this one.

For their gift of life and love to the people of our Diocese, we are eternally grateful. Eternal rest grant unto them, o Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace, Amen.
