We pray for the repose of the soul of The Reverend James Kelly of the Diocese of Montana. He departed this life last Sunday, May 21. Please keep his family in your prayers, especially his wife, the Reverend Theresa Kelly.
Father of all, we pray to you for Jim, and for all those whom we love but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May his soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen. (BCP, 498)
Both Jim and Theresa Kelly were ordained in the Episcopal Diocese of West Virginia and moved to Montana to serve the Plinter Cluster (Anaconda, Butte, Deer Lodge and Philipsburg) in 2014. Father Stephen knew and worked with both of them when he was in West Virginia as well.
