Episcopal Diocese of Rochester
Joy in Christ, a way of life

Rev. Douglas Carroll

Dear Friends,
I write with deep sadness to inform you of the death of the Rev. Douglas Carroll, this past Sunday,
August 6, 2017.  Rev. Carroll served the Episcopal Church for over 55 in the Southern Tier. Please keep his wife Donna and their family in your prayers as they mourn.

A celebration of life, ministry and funeral will take place at Christ Church, Hornell, Wednesday, August 16 at 11AM. I invite Clergy to vest and process (white stole).
Some of you may know that Donna and Doug moved recently to Florida, closer to their daughter.
Doug called me before he left and most recently sent me copies of his compilation of daily
observations titled, When Evening Comes. Well it may be the evening of his life, but certainly
morning with his savior and creator across the shore where “…God will guide him to springs of
the water of life, and will wipe away every tear from his eyes.” Revelation 7:17b.
We will share more information as it is made available.

“May the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace”

In Christ, our resurrection!

The Rt. Rev. Prince G. Singh
VIII Bishop in Rochester
