**Statement of The Most Reverend Michael Mulvey, STL, DD
Bishop of Corpus Christi
It is with deep sadness and a sense of personal loss that I inform you that Monsignor Morgan Rowsome a retired priest of this diocese and the former Pastor of St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles Parish in Corpus Christi, passed away Friday afternoon as the result of a one car accident on Interstate 37 between Corpus Christi and San Antonio.
Monsignor Rowsome was a joyful, caring servant of the Lord and within the fraternity of priests he was a welcomed brother. Monsignor had a great impact on many lives during his years of priestly ministry in both the Dioceses of Corpus Christi and Laredo and was an inspiration to many vocations to the priesthood.
Personally I considered Monsignor Morgan a special friend and will miss his quick humor and joyful laugh. Above all, we will miss his prayerful spirit. I ask Monsignor Rowsome to now pray before the Lord for me, the Diocese of Corpus Christi and all of those he touched in his life of priestly service.
We stand very close to those who suffer the lack of his earthly presence especially his Sister Katherine Lopez, his other siblings and family members in the U.S. and Ireland.
Visitation and Rosary for Msgr. Morgan will take place on Tuesday May 26th, 10:00 am to Noon at St. Mark the Evangelist Church, 1602 Thousand Oaks Dr. in San Antonio and will be followed immediately by Mass at 12 Noon at the same location. Msgr. Morgan’s body will be returned to Ireland where he will be buried next to his parents.
The Diocese of Corpus Christi will gather to pray for Msgr. Morgan during a Memorial Mass to be celebrated at Corpus Christi Cathedral, 505 North Upper Broadway in Corpus Christi. The date and time is pending.
May he enter into the eternal presence of God
