The Archdiocese of San Antonio has announced the death of a priest who spent decades leading congregations in the city.
Monsignor Patrick Terence Nolan died on Easter Sunday at the age of 78.
Nolan reportedly retired in February and had recently been diagnosed with viral pneumonia. He had tested positive for COVID-19, but the archdiocese says the cause of his death was from natural causes.
Auxiliary Bishop Michael Boulette said, “We pray for his family and brother priests who are in mourning. May the blessing of our dear Lord bring comfort during this time of sorrow.”
