Fr. Wayne Johnson Memorial Service

Posted: 5/7/2013

As most in the parish are aware, Fr. Wayne Johnson, the Rector of Holy Comforter from 1971 to 1986, died on January 2 just before his 94th birthday.  A funeral was held later that week at Trinity Church, Rock Island, Fr. Johnson?s spiritual home in retirement (and the church he served as Rector before coming to Holy Comforter).   We are also going to have a celebration of his life here on Saturday, May 11, at 11:00 a.m., with interment in the columbarium and a reception following.  Fr. Myers?who served under Fr. Johnson as both curate and associate?will return to preach.  Following the liturgy and inurnment (interment in the Columbarium), there will be a reception in the Great Room hosted by our Bereavement Committee. All who knew and loved Fr. Johnson will surely want to attend if possible, and to greet Marie and their family; so please make a special point to add this date to your schedules.
