I received word this morning that Fr. Keith Roderick, who most recently had been serving as Provost of St. Paul's Cathedral in Springfield, Illinois, died in his sleep during the night. Fr. Roderick had faithfully served for many years in the Diocese of Quincy and was one of my canonical examiners when I was ordained nearly 25 years ago. Fr. Roderick was also a son of Nashotah House. His death will be a personal loss for so many.
My condolences to his wife, Mary Beth, and the Roderick family. May his soul rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon him.
