Bishop Robert Christian, O.P.

This morning, the Dominican friars of the Western Province learned of the passing of their brother, Robert Francis Christian, O.P., Auxiliary Bishop of San Francisco.

Bishop Christian has tirelessly served the Church and faithful for nearly 50 years. We are deeply saddened to hear of his death and entrust his soul to the loving arms of our Heavenly Father.

We ask for your prayers for the repose of his soul, as well as for his grieving family, friends and Dominican brothers around the world.

Requiescat in pace.

Romans 14:7-9
None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. For this is why Christ died and came to life, that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.

More information regarding funeral services will come later.
