Fr. Mario Balbi, SDB, Rest in Peace
Today is a very sad day for our community and for me personally. The eldest member of my community, Fr. Mario Balbi, SDB passed away yesterday at the Port of Newark following an accident. Fr. Mario would have been 89 years old on March 25 of this year and he still went to work everyday as a chaplain at the Port of Newark. He was a great inspiration of pastoral zeal and hard work. Please pray for the repose of his soul and for our community as we mourn his passing.
