Our Father John Bradley has been loved and respected by countless friends and parishioners all over the world and around our diocese. This last March 25, 2020 he celebrated his 85th birthday, and he was looking forward to celebrating his upcoming 55th Priesthood anniversary.

Unfortunately, Fr. John Bradley required emergency hip surgery on Saturday 9/26 while visiting Palm Springs after having fallen and suffering a fracture. While the surgery went well, he experienced a major stroke the following day 9/27 and remained in serious condition in Palm Springs. 

On 10/03/2020 the First Saturday of October, the month of Rosary, our beloved Fr. John took his last breathe at 6:18 am and went to be with God, Our Father, in Heaven. His Vigil Service was held at Holy Family Cathedral on Tuesday, Oct. 13, and his Funeral Mass at Christ Cathedral on Wednesday, Oct. 14, and they can be viewed on the below links. Fr. John was buried on the same day at Holy Sepulcher Cemetery in the bishops and priests’ section.
