I am Fr. Paul Cochran, S.J., Jesuit superior of the Regis Community in Spokane (the retired and infirmed Jesuits of the Oregon Province).
I was asked to inform you that Fr. Roberto Saenz, S.J., is nearing the end of his earthly journey and is in our infirmary at Gonzaga University under Hospice Care. He is experiencing kidney failure but is being kept very comfortable. One of our nurse aides is from El Salvador and speaks with him in Spanish which is his preferred language at this time though he still speaks English. Fr. Saenz spent many years in the Yakima Diocese in pastoral and social ministries so it would be appreciated if you could commend him and his final days to your Masses and prayers.
Fr. Paul Cochran, S.J.
Superior, Regis Community
