Father Ashe June 23, 2017 Sacred Heart Mission

JOIN US ON NOVEMBER 4, 2017, FIRST SATURDAY AT 8:00 A.M., AS WE CELEBRATE A MEMORIAL MASS FOR FATHER ASHE.

Father Michael Brendan Ashe went to rest in the Arms of Jesus on Thursday, October 5, 2017. Born to Julia and Michael Ashe in Listowel, Ireland, Father Ashe was one of 5 children. He followed his calling to the Priesthood at an early age, entering the seminary when he was 14 years old and being ordained at 23.
Throughout his priesthood, he served in various parishes and ministries all over the world, including Rome, London, France, Sweden, and eventually the United States. He ministered to the people here in South Texas for over 40 years. Throughout his time in the United States, he never lost his love for all things Irish - horse races, shamrocks, Gregorian Chant by The Monks of Glenstal Abbey, and St. Patrick's Catholic Church.
His entire life was spent in selfless service to Our Lord, his parishioners, his family and friends. He is survived by family in Ireland - sisters Mary and Aunie, and his brother Thomas, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother John.
Visitation will begin at 6:15 p.m., Monday, October 9, 2017 at St. Patrick"s Catholic Church with a Rosary to follow at 7:00 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. A reception will be held immediately after the Funeral Mass at St. Patrick's parish hall.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to The Diocesan Priest's Retirement Fund, Chancery Office, 620 Lipan St, Corpus Christi TX 78401; Food for the Poor, www.foodforthepoor.org; Fullness of Truth, 1110 Kingwood #106, Kingwood TX 77339; or to a favorite charity.
