His Excellency, Raymond J. Boland, who had been Bishop of Birmingham, Alabama from 1988 to 1993, died last night in his native Ireland. He was 82 years old. More information on this page of the web site of his more recent diocese, Kansas City-St. Joseph.
Please pray for the repose of Bishop Boland’s soul, and for all deceased priests.
By the way, this is not related to the special prayer request that I recently posted, which still stands – click here to see that!
