As Brother John Charles chaplain, at the ecumenical gathering with the APCK in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in the last decade, it was clear he was a holy man and an inpiration for us all.

May his soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed, rert in peace and may light perpetual shine upon them.

Brother John-Charles was indeed a holy man. I had the pleasure of his presence at my dining table and in leading retreats. He will be missed, but I am confident he will pray for us in his new job assignment. :-)
