The End of an Era

Word from the Archbishop's Office brings sad news: Msgr. Larry Breslin passed away this afternoon after a lengthy battle with various illnesses. He was the last monsignor in the Archdiocese. Please pray for the repose of his soul, that the angels may lead him to paradise.

I will remember Msgr. Breslin in my prayers.

However, there is one other monsignor left in the diocese but because he isn't a member of the Cincinnati archdiocese so you might not know of him (I think his actual diocese is Columbus), Msgr. Paul Metzger.

He decided to retire in Middletown and assists at Holy Family Parish frequently, normally celebrating both weekday and weekend masses.

Msgr. Metzger just celebrated 65 years as a priest.
