Fr. Joe Memorial
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Joseph McGaffin, pastor of St. Elizabeth Seton Parish. He passed away Sunday February 12, 2017 at the age of 52.
Fr. Joe McGaffin was born December 8, 1964 in Utica, New York, and Ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Phoenix on June 1, 1996.
He served as Parochial Vicar of St. Mary Parish in Chandler, St. Paul Parish in Phoenix, St. Daniel the Prophet Parish in Scottsdale, St. Jerome Parish in Phoenix and St. Clement of Rome Parish in Sun City. He was named Pastor of Resurrection Parish in 2006 and St. Elizabeth Seton Parish in 2010 where he was Pastor until he was called home to the Lord.
He was hospitalized in October with respiratory problems. Fr. Joe had hoped to return to St. Elizabeth Seton Parish in the coming weeks to serve once again as their pastor. Saturday evening he attended the vigil Mass at St. Elizabeth Seton and received Holy Communion. He was called home by the Lord early Sunday morning. May he now receive the reward of a good and faithful servant.

(Vatican Radio) The blessing of a newly commissioned icon of Christ the Saviour sets the stage for Pope Francis’ historic visit to the Anglican Church of All Saints on Sunday. It’s the first time a pope has ever visited an Anglican place of worship in his diocese of Rome and it comes as the centerpiece of celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of the community.
The icon, which will be blessed by the Pope, together with Anglican and Orthodox leaders attending the afternoon prayer service, is the work of English artist Ian Knowles, who heads a school for Palestinian art students in the Holy Land.Read More
