ST. LOUIS – Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, released the following statement upon the death of Bishop Robert J. Shaheen:

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Bishop Robert J. Shaheen, a good friend and a beloved shepherd of the Maronite Catholic community.

I ask that the faithful of the Archdiocese of St. Louis join me in praying for the repose of the soul of Bishop Shaheen. Bishop Elias Zaidan and the faithful of the Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon of Los Angeles will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

 May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.
