+ In Memoriam +

-see section below-

March 9, 2013
  Msgr. Hector Francisco de la Cruz, Ripoll, OSF passed away.  For over 20 years he had visited the Chapel and provided the Sacrament of Confirmation and pastoral guidance as Catholic bishop. 
Msgr. Ripoll resided in Yucatan, Mexico.  Msgr. Ripoll was among the Catholic bishops who resisted modernism in the Church and continued to offer the Traditional Latin Mass and administered the Sacraments in accord with the traditional Rites of the Roman Catholic Church.  His episcopate stemmed from Archbishop  Thuc of Vietnam.  Msgr. Ripoll had entered the Franciscan Order in 1962.
He remained a faithful son of St. Francis until the end.
Eternal Rest Grant Unto Him O Lord, And Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Him. 
 May He Rest In Peace.
