Statement from Mayor Landrieu on the passing of Father Michael Jacques

June 07, 2013

NEW ORLEANS, LA-- Mayor Mitch Landrieu released the following statement today following news that Father Michael Jacques of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church passed away.

“Today, New Orleans lost another giant with the passing of Father Michael Jacques of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church.

“For decades, Father Mike faithfully served St. Peter Claver Parish and tirelessly advocated for the Treme neighborhood. It was common for Father Mike to remind his parishioners of the call we have to love and serve our community.

“My prayers go out to the Jacques family, the Society of St. Edmond and the parishioners of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church. While we mourn today as a city, I am confident that the legacy of service Father Mike helped to instill at St. Peter Claver and throughout our city will live on."
