Fr. Blake has suffered from a series of medical issues dating back to the time he was in the seminary. Despite these many struggles he has generously continued his service in the Diocese.
Fr. Fry was ordained on June 29, 2007 at St. Patrick Cathedral by Most Rev. Armando X. Ochoa. He served as Parochial Vicar at St. Patrick Cathedral, Parochial Vicar at St. Raphael Parish and simultaneously, Administrator at San Isidro Mission. He also served as Administrator Pro-Tem at St. Raphael Parish. Later, Fr. Fry was the Administrator and later, Pastor at Our Lady of Assumption.
This retirement will allow Fr. Fry to pursue medical treatment and to give his health the attention it requires.
Fr. Ben Flores has been named a temporary administrator at Our Lady of Assumption. We ask for your prayers for Fr. Blake as well as for Bishop Mark as he considers a new parish leader for OLA.
