Bishop Wm. Michael Mulvey extended condolences on behalf of the Diocese of Corpus Christi to the Society of the Most Holy Trinity and to Father Jordan’s family
“Father Jordan was a dedicated servant of our Lord and will be missed greatly,” Bishop Mulvey said. “Over his nearly 30 years in priestly ministry, Father Jordan was esteemed for his dedication to the unborn and the incarcerated. His tireless commitments to the cause of life and to his brothers in prison are an example for all of us on how to live the Incarnate Word of God.”
The bishop also asked for prayers for Father Roche’s full recovery.
