August Reflection for Open Door – Felicia Rakes
Monsignor Chester Michael (1916-2014) RIP
We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28) RSV
(favorite Bible quote of Fr. Chet’s)
It is with great sadness that we report that Monsignor Chester Michael peacefully passed away on Thursday at 3pm on July 31, 2014 at age 97 while in hospice care. Rev. Msgr. Chester P. Michael, a retired priest of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, was born in Berkeley Springs, WV, in 1916, ordained to the priesthood at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in 1942, and was a faithful priest of the Diocese for 72 years. Please remember Msgr. Michael and his family in your prayers.
