1936 - 2007
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death, Saturday, of Bishop John J. Kaising, auxiliary bishop of this Archdiocese. He had just returned to DC after spending Christmas ministering to our service men and women in Korea. He was ordained a priest in 1962 and a bishop in 2000. He served as an active duty priest-chaplain in the US Army from 1969 through 1998.
Funeral arrangments are pending.
Please join us in prayer for this man of God who, upon the occasion of his episcopal ordination, published his thoughts for all: "…I have called you friends because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father [Jn 15:15].
May he rest in peace.
