It is with great sadness that Bishop David P. Talley and our Diocese share the passing of Deacon Robert “Bob” Russell.
Deacon Bob entered eternal life this past Monday, January 15. He was ordained on May 21, 2016. Deacon Bob was an integral part of our St. Mary Catholic Church in Jackson for many years and loved serving the Church as a Deacon.
A few of Deacon Bob’s principal Ministries at St. Mary in Jackson were: Coordinator of Hospital Ministry of the Sick, Coordinator of Sacristans, and Coordinator for Holy Week Liturgies.
Please pray for the repose of Deacon Bob’s soul and for his family and many friends. May God grant him eternal rest.
Deacon Bob will be cremated and buried in the Columbarium at St. Mary in Jackson. The Funeral Mass will be scheduled within the next six-eight weeks.
Further information on Deacon Bob, his arrangements, and his Obituary are forthcoming.
