May the choirs of angels come to greet you.  May they speed you to paradise.   May the Lord enfold you in his mercy.  May you find eternal life.

Book of Remembrance

Father Roch Ciandella, OFM at Mount Alvernia.  Roch was born on March 12th 1943 Ordained to the priesthood on May 13th, 1972; and died on May 11th 2017.  A fitting tribute was offered for a man who was so welcoming and expounded the word, Charity, Humility and Penance.  The chapel at Mount Alvernia was filled to capacity with standing room only, outside of the chapel itself.  A wonderful human who mirrored a true Franciscan spirituality.  May he rest in peace…
