Communiqué of the Death of Fr. J.C. Iscara

We regret to inform you of the death of our beloved Reverend Father Juan Carlos lscara early this morning, December 21 , 2023. He died peacefully after not too much agony, having received all the Last Sacraments and comforts of his Holy Mother Church.

He had gradually been declining in health since this past summer. [Two weeks ago], it being evident that the Seminary staff was no longer able to provide him the medical care he needed, he was moved by professional medical transport to the Sursum Corda House, a nursing home affiliated with the SSPX, in Phoenix, AZ. lt was there that he passed away this morning.

Having been stationed at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary for 30 years, he will be sorely missed by all: the professors (all of which were his former students), the seminarians, brothers, and sisters. We owe him very much.

His funeral will be held here at the Seminary, celebrated by His Excellency Bishop Fellay, on January 3rd. 

Requiescat in pace!
