I was stunned to learn today that Fr David Bellinghaused, O.S.B., pastor of St Mary’s Church in Altus, Arkansas, died last Tuesday, December 31, 2013. That was just 2 days after we attended Mass at St Mary’s and then spent a delightful hour with Fr David. He gave us a gracious and informative tour of the church.
He was a good, gracious and learned man. My sympathies are with the members of St Mary’s parish in Altus.
