Sad News
I received word today of the tragic death of a young priest of the Diocese of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Fr. Todd Reitmeyer. Fr. Reitmeyer was a few years behind me at the North American College. He was ordained just shy of three years ago this June. He was a dedicated, young, and zealous priest. He died yesterday in a jet ski accident while vacationing near his family home in Texas. What a tragic loss for his parishes, his diocese and, the entire Body of Christ that is the Church. May he rest in peace!
