The Diocese of Brooklyn has lost another clergyman.

This news has been circulating on Facebook this morning: Deacon Jamie “Jimmy” Pinzon, from St. Joan of Arc Parish in Jackson Heights, has died as a result of the coronavirus.

I’m awaiting further details. Please remember his wife and family during this painful time. From the biography published at his ordination in 2013:

Jaime Pinzon of St. Joan of Arc parish, Jackson Heights, was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Married to Elma Nineth, he has two children. He is an architect.

May angels guide you to your rest. The Lord told us, “In my Father’s house, there are many mansions.” May you dwell in yours in peace. Pray for us, brother, as we pray for you.

Well done, good and faithful servant

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him…
