I wanted to post news of this as soon as possible, so check back here later for a link to an official obituary or biography. (Funeral and visitation details here)
Fr. James Rodis passed away this morning, February 4, 2016, the Feast of St. Andrew Corsini. Those St. Louisans attached to the traditional Mass will know him as the Pastor of St. Agatha Parish until 2005. He performed much good service to the traditional Catholic community and was the clerical force behind the regular celebration of the TLM here from 1984 until other traditional Mass communities began to arrive in St. Louis in 2005. Even after this, Fr. Rodis continued until his last illness to celebrate the Mass at Little Flower Parish.
Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua
luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen.
