Latin Requiem Mass fulfilled for Msgr. Antonelli


The late Msgr. Louis Antonelli requested many years before his passing that he would like a traditional Latin Requiem Mass to be celebrated upon his death. He made this known to Bishop Ryan Jimenez of Chalan Kanoa and many of his parishioners. On Wednesday, Feb, 20, 2019, Pale’ Eric Forbes, OFM Cap, fulfilled Msgr. Antonelli’s wish and said a Requiem Mass for the beloved clergyman at the Our Lady of Lourdes chapel in Patten Gogue, Rota and prayed a Responso at his grave nearby following the Mass. Many of the Rota faithful were in attendance. (Photos courtesy of Father Eric Forbes, OFM Cap.)
