Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is my sad duty to inform you that Canon Anthony Morello, Vicar General of the Diocese of the West, died early today [Sunday, 13 January] from a heart attack. He died in Portland, Oregon, where he had gone on church business. His wife, Carolyn, was with him when he died.
Canon Morello had served his diocese and parish church exceptionally well. In recent years, his health was fragile. Nevertheless, he worked tirelessly to resolve issues at St. Mary of the Angels and in the Diocese of the West.
Please keep Carolyn and the Morello family in your prayers.
A Requiem Mass will be held at All Saints Anglican Church in Fountain Valley, CA at 4:00 pm on January 23.
Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon him.
