The following announcement came from Bp. Daniel Dolan on Twitter today:

“Fr. Cekada died peacefully this morning, surrounded by prayer, and well fortified by the Sacraments of the Church. Please remember this good and generous priestly soul in your prayers. The funeral is scheduled for Thursday morning, with the wake Wednesday evening.”

We at The Remnant would like to request prayers for the repose of his soul. Although Fr. Cekada disagreed with The Remnant on some very important issues, we always found him to be a fair-minded truth seeker and someone with whom it was a pleasure to have principled debates, for example, the Great Debate of '98 between Fr. Cekada and Michael Davies, and later debates in The Remnant with Fr. Brian Harrison.

Requiescat in pace.
