It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Fr. Francisco Valdovinos, ST, who passed on Sunday, January 17, 2021 from COVID-19 and its complications. We are most grateful to the medical professionals who patiently and compassionately cared for him.
We entrust him now to God, the giver of all life and implore Our Lady of Guadalupe to welcome him into the kingdom.
Fr. Francisco made a BIG impact wherever he served, as evidenced by the outpouring of messages we have received after his death, plus extensive media coverage. He was admired by those within our religious community as well as outside it.
