Archbishop Salatka, Requiescat In Pace

Received the following email this afternoon:

Archbishop Salatka died peacefully this morning at Saint Ann Retirement Center. Archbishop Beltran and Father Monahan immediately offered the prayers for the dead and blessed his body.

Tomorrow Archbishop Salatka will lie in state here at the Pastoral Center beginning at 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. On Wednesday he will lie in state at the cathedral from 10 a.m. until the wake. The wake service will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the cathedral. The Mass of Resurrection will be Thursday at 2 p.m. with burial in Resurrection Cemetery Chapel following.

As a tribute to Archbishop Salatka and in gratitude for his role as our shepherd, the archdiocesan offices (of Oklahoma City) will be closed all day Thursday.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, And let perpetual light shine upon him.

May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, Through the mercy of God rest in peace.
