RIP Bishop Niedergeses

Today was the funeral and burial of our beloved old Bishop.  Bishop Niedergeses was the 9th Bishop of Nashville from 1975-1992.  One of the many little blessings that God granted us for moving here was that we had several opportunities to meet him.  John and Kevin got to serve at his Masses a few times when Bishop would come to visit his family.

 The old bishop grew up in the town that we attend Mass in.  Most of his family still live there.  This morning his funeral Mass was in Nashville.  This afternoon there was visitation at our church, a short ceremony that was done before transporting him to his final resting place.  The children watched as the casket was lowered.  It was an experience I’m sure they won’t soon forget. 

 Please pray for the repose of the soul of this good man and for his many family members who are left to grieve.
