Death of Msgr. James M. Sheehan
Office of the Archbishop
DATE: August 28, 2011
It is with great sadness that the Archbishop announces the passing into Eternal Life of Monsignor James Matthew Sheehan, Judicial Vicar and Secretary for Canonical Affairs. He was 39 years of age. Please join us in praying for the peaceful repose of Monsignor Sheehan's soul, and for the consolation of his family.
As the effects of Cancer set in, and while continuing treatment, it was Monsignor's wish to return home to our Residence at the Cathedral Basilica until the time of the Lord's Call. He died surrounded by a most loving and caring family, and faithful friends.
The Obsequies are as follows, all at our Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred
