In mid-morning on Sunday, August 4 after a prolonged illness, our Father Gerald passed to the Lord. He was always exemplary in his steadfastness despite numerous setbacks and sicknesses. We mourn his passing, even as we rejoice that he is at last with Lord who loved him beyond all telling. Saints of God, come to his
aid! Come to meet him,
angels of the Lord! Receive his soul and
present him to God Most High. Give him eternal
rest, O Lord, may he live on in your presence. and may your light
shine upon him forever!
