  • This was a priest who gave very generously of his energy and time. He was still saying Mass regularly, assisting Sacred Heart and Old St. Mary's - as well as his regular Mass commitments - a week before he passed away.

    He was often celebrant for those extra ceremonies - like Tenebrae - when we struggled finding another celebrant. He will certainly be missed.

    Requiescat in Pace.

    Though I had limited interactions with him I knew of his great dedication to the Latin Mass communities in the Cincinnati area. He will be missed.

  • I would always find myself hearing his Masses at Old Saint Mary's during my visits to Cincinnati over the last few years. Although I never got to meet him, this news hit me hard. His dedication to offering the Latin Mass, even to his old age, left a deep impression on me which will never leave.
