Fr. John Stochl, S. J., passes in St. Louis

BELIZE CITY, Mon. Nov. 7, 2016–The newspaper has been reliably informed of the death last night of Fr. John Stochl, S. J., in St. Louis, Missouri. Our source says that he suffered a stroke while attending Mass in the Jesuit Infirmary there last week.

Fr. Stochl was a priest who was much loved in Belize, where he served for many decades. In turn, Fr. John loved Belize as a man would love his home. He left The Jewel reluctantly to go into retirement in St. Louis last year.

May he rest in peace. This was a good man.
