Dear Members of the Blessed Sacrament Community,
It is with great faith in the Resurrection that I inform you that Father Jack has joined Our Lord in heaven. Father Jack was born into eternal life this morning around 10:30 a.m.
As most of you know by now, Father Jack O’Donoghue had been in the hospital for over two weeks. Earlier this week, he was released from intensive care and moved to an intermediate care area where he continued showing signs of improvement.
Last night, however, Father Jack developed a series of setbacks requiring him to be placed back into intensive care. The medical staff determined they could no longer offer any assistance and it was agreed to place Father Jack in God’s hands per his request.
Blessed Sacrament will continue to provide you with information, including arrangements, as it becomes available to our office.
The Parish Staff is praying for each of you during this most difficult of times. Please know that you are not alone on this journey.
+ Eternal rest grant unto Father Jack O Lord and let Your perpetual Light shine up on him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
In Christ’s peace and mercy,
