Here was a man

Thomas Vander Woude was the sacristan at Holy Trinity Church in Bristow, Virginia and the father of a local priest in my diocese. He died a horrible death so that his youngest son might live. God bless this brave man and his sorrowing family.

Eternal rest grant unto him, oh Lord, may perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
