|Father Albert's Viewings and Funeral
Father Albert's brother, Father David, led the prayers at the viewing and Rosary in our parish church.
A variety of people attended and assisted at the Rosary. Our church was filled far beyond overflowing.
Father Albert's casket was moved to Our Lady of Belen Church for another viewing and Rosary. The final viewing was held just before the funeral Mass the next day.
Father David, a Servite priest like Father Albert, led the funeral Mass at Our Lady of Belen. Members of our parish can be seen among the singers beyond the altar.
Along with Father David, Archbishop Michael Sheehan and Chancellor Father Timothy Martinez officiated at the funeral Mass, along with the Deputy Provincial of the Servite Order. Our Own Deacon Eddie Espinosa also served.
After the Mass, the casket was moved to Our Lady of Belen Memorial Gardens for interment. Parishioners, friends, and family members laid flowers on Father Albert's casket.
A nearby tree and inscription show this to be an appropriate place for Father Albert's rest.
