In Memoriam: Connor Sorensen

December 21, 2013Fr. Ronald M. Vierling

Asking prayers for the blessed repose of the soul of Morrissey resident Connor Sorensen, who, after a lengthy illness, passed peacefully into eternal life early Friday morning, December 20. The Advent season as one of 'waiting for the Lord' is especially poignant at this hour. Connor's wait is over. He now rests with the Lord who he knew and loved in his young life. That place where "eye has not seen, nor has ear heard what God has prepared for those who love him" (1 Cor. 2:9) is now Connor's home and remains for us our Advent hope and consolation. Rest peacefully, Connor.

Connor's funeral will take place on Monday, December 23 at 10:30 AM at 10:30 AM at St. Thomas More Student Parish, 421 Monroe Street, Kalamazoo, MI.  A reception will follow at the VFW Post 1527, 1920 Kilgore Road; Kalamazoo.

Morrissey Manor will be offering a Memorial Mass for Connor after the Christmas break. Connor's family will be in attendance.  Details to be announced.
