The World Loses Another Long-standing Faithful Priest

Father Anselm Martin, OFM Cap, was a long-time fixture at St. John the Evangelist in Center City Philadelphia. On January 1st, his 93rd birthday, he entered the hospital, where he was soon called  home by the Lord on January 11th.  Father Anselm continued to celebrate Mass and hear confessions until his health declined this past year.  He was a gentle, holy presence for whom we gave thanks to God for his long and faithful ministry.   This is  the link to the obituary released by his order.

May he rest in peace.
