“Eternal rest grant unto you and let perpetual light shine upon you. May you rest in peace. Amen.”

Dear Parish and School Community,

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Fr. David J. Kelley, O.S.A., who left us this morning.

Fr. Kelley dedicated his life to serving God and His people. He served various parishes and became our Pastor in 2002, faithfully leading St. Mary of the Assumption Parish in Waterford, N.Y., and later St. Augustine’s Church in Troy, N.Y.

His passing is a significant loss for our community. We ask for your prayers for Fr. Kelley’s soul and for comfort for his family and all who mourn him.

May we find solace in our faith and in each other during this difficult time.

In Christ’s love,

The Community of St. Mary of the Assumption Parish and St. Mary’s Catholic School – Waterford
