There will be a Rosary for Fr Michael at the Chapel of Our Lady of Corpus Christi on Friday, July 13th, at 7pm. His funeral will take place at the Corpus Christi Cathedral at 10am the next morning. His mortal remains can be viewed there from 8am.
Fr Ed Roche, the crash survivor, had surgery on July 11th and is good spirits.
Fr Michael Jordan, SOLT, died last night in a fatal car accident. SOLT priests are asked to offer their customary three masses for the eternal repose of his soul. Please also pray for Fr Ed Roche who was in the car with him has been admitted to the hospital and is awaiting surgery.
Besides his constant good cheer, Fr Mike was noted for his indefatigable pro-life work, and his continuous care of the sick and elderly religious and clergy of our community. He had spent many years in the Philippines as a founding member of that mission. He is also known for his unfailing kindness and tendency to be late because he would stop to listen to anyone who had his ear.
He was a parish priest, formator, served on different Regional Councils, and was known for being a thorough confessor.
His untimely death coincides with the SOLT Regional Assembly, which begins today and lasts until Monday, July 16th, which would have been the twenty-ninth anniversary of Fr Mike's ordination to the sacred priesthood.
You will be sorely missed, Fr Michael. Eternal Rest grant unto him O Lord.
