With sadness, but with faith in our Lord’s Death and Resurrection, I write to inform you that Father Gerard Creedon, Pastor of Holy Family Church, Dale City, and Pastor of Good Shepherd Church from 1979-1991, died Thursday afternoon, November 16. Father Creedon had undergone heart surgery last Friday. Unfortunately, he experienced significant complications after the surgery from which he could not recover.
Please pray for the repose of his soul and the consolation of his family.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.
Sincerely yours in the Lord,
