Fr. Peter's Post
THE MOST REVEREND BISHOP PAUL D. SIRBA
We were all shocked to hear of our Bishop's sudden death on the 1st Sunday of Advent. His passing was truly a homily on the readings that Sunday. The Lord tells us in the gospel that the end will come at a time we least expect. But the Scriptures that day also noted what joy we will have as we enter into the house of the Lord. I knew Paul David Sirba since our college days at St. Thomas and I can tell you that there was always a genuine goodness about him. As someone said when they first met him ten years ago as our new bishop: "He makes me want to be a better person". I couldn't agree more. Let us continue to pray for the repose of his soul and pray that the Holy Father will send us another good shepherd to lead us.

Archbishop Hebda, Most Reverend Bishops, my brother priests, deacons, religious sisters, dignitaries and members of various ecclesial communities, and my brothers and sisters in Christ, on behalf of my brother John, and sister Cathy, and my mother Helen, we want to thank you all for your outpouring of love and support to us in this our time of loss and also, for the honor you have paid to our brother by your presence here today. It means a great deal to us all.
I know that all of us here were stunned to learn that Bishop Paul had died this past Sunday. In fact, many of you have told me that when you learned of his death, you said there must be some mistake. It must be someone else who had died. Others have told me that they heard the words being said to them, but the words didn’t register.Read More
