Death of Bishop Joseph Cistone 1949-2018:

It is with heavy hearts that we must inform you all of the sudden death of our Bishop Joseph Cistone, who was undergoing a second round of treatment for cancer. We don’t really know what happened, and the Diocese is saddened and shocked. Eternal rest grant unto him, oh Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
