Ecce Sacerdos Magnus

Father Donal “Ray” Kehew, one of the finest men and priests this diocese ever ordained, entered eternity on Sept. 19 at 5:35 a.m. at the Mount St. Rita Nursing Care Facility in Cumberland, R.I.

He suffered long and much from cancer, but retained his keen mind and sense of wit to the end. We know he takes his stellar memory with him to heaven, where he remembers us all and intercedes for us.

Thank you, God, for Father Kehew.

—Father Joseph Protano, Pastor, St. Andrew Church, B.I.
