It is with the heaviest of hearts that I write to share the news that Fr. Joe Miller passed on Tuesday evening about 7:00 p.m. Fr. Joe's sisters Bertha and Rose arrived Tuesday afternoon and were able to be with him.
He was my friend for over forty years and I have numerous memories of our time together. None more special than the trip we shared to Alaska in the summer of 2019. It was a blessed time for us as we had the opportunity to share thoughts, memories, and prayers during the trip.
There will be two times of prayer and vigil in honor of Fr. Joe.
On Friday afternoon and evening from 2:00 - 7:30 p.m. there will be a time of visitation followed by a vigil service at 7:30 p.m. at St. Francis Xavier Church in St. Joseph, Missouri.
On Monday March 22, 2021 we will celebrate Fr. Joe's life and ministry with a mass of Christian burial at 11:00 a.m. at St. James Church in Liberty, Missouri. There will be visitation at the Church beginning at 10:00 a.m.
The family and community welcomes cards and memorial gifts which may be mailed to Precious Blood Center; 2103 Saint Gaspar Way; Liberty, Missouri 64068-7941.
Let us keep one another in prayer. In the Blood of Christ.
Fr. Joe B.
