The Passing of Brother Knight Ray Torres

I regret to inform you that Brother Knight Ray Torres passed away early this morning. He was 91 years old. He was a very active member of the Southgate community, holding many positions and being a catalyst of change. He was also a very active member of our Council. He is survived by his wife, Betty, and his family.

Along with the Rosary Altar Confraternity, we will be saying a Rosary for him at 7PM on Wednesday, May 10, 2017. It will be held at Molnar Funeral Home, 14032 Northline Rd, Southgate, MI. We ask that all members please try to attend to support Betty and Brother Ray’s family and to pray for the repose of the soul of Brother Ray.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and may the perpetual light shine upon him!
May he rest in peace. Amen.
