It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of the Very Reverend Canon Gus Franklin. Fr Gus died on Sunday, May 3, 2020. He had been in nursing home care for several months as he fought lung cancer.

A complete obituary can be found at the Springfield Journal Register here. A visitation will be held at Staab Funeral Home in Springfield on Saturday, May 9, 2020 from 2-5 pm, adhering to the protocol established by the CDC for funeral visitations. Cremation will follow. The Solemn Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at a later date.

Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
