Fr. John Salvas died in his sleep last night. He came home from the hospital last evening and we gathered in the kitchen to share some time together. This morning when we checked on him he was already gone. He got his wish: to die at home in the friary and not in the hospital. He was assigned to St. Francis of Assisi Parish/Friary in Hackensack, NJ. He was ordained in 1988.
Because of the Covid 19 restrictions a memorial Mass will be offered at a later time. Please pray for his soul as well as for consolation for his Dad, family and friars.
May his soul Rest In Peace.
