Commander John Strasser died Sunday, July 12, 2009, in his hospital room at Duke University. Mrs. Strasser and two children were with him when he drew his final breaths. Their prayers as he left this world included the St Joseph prayer. Commander Strasser was very devoted to St. Joseph. A statue of St. Joseph had been brought from his Floridian home to Duke. The funeral will be at Tuesday, July 21 at 9 o’clock in the morning at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in Niceville, Florida.
Please pray for the continued outpouring of graces on the marriage of Katie Ferri, Seton ’98, and Frank J. Schofield, Jr., Seton ’97, whose Nuptial Mass was concelebrated by Fr. Thomas J. VanderWoude, Jr. and Fr. Ron Stone at St. Andrew the Apostle, Clifton, May 30th. And please join our prayer of thanksgiving for the miraculous recovery of Mr. Ferri from a heart attack on May 17th, and of Katie’s grandmother, Mrs. Eileen Mountain, from a stroke/illness on May 27th. Grace upon grace has been poured out surrounding these events, and we know that the petitions of this prayerful community are continuing to bear fruit. We are blessed to be associated with this community, and give thanks to the Lord and Our Lady for causing these young people to be on “the road to Manassas,” where they could meet and form a Catholic family, in the fullness of the teachings of our Holy Mother the Church. Praised be Jesus Christ, now and forever!
Please pray for Kelly Koehr ’05 and Paul Mooney ’05 who are now engaged to be married
