Saturday, January 21, will mark six months since the disappearance of Fr. Anthony Kluckman, SCJ. He was last seen on security footage as he left Sacred Heart at Monastery Lake pre-dawn. Police, in collaboration with a wide variety of investigative organizations, have done in-depth searches of not only Sacred Heart at Monastery Lake and its surrounding property, but the wider area as well. Trained dog teams, scuba divers, drones and sonar have been used multiple times. Information about Fr. Anthony has been shared with authorities across the country. Yet we are still left with the pain and frustration of not knowing what happened to Fr. Anthony, where he may have gone and why. As noted previously, Fr. Anthony suffered from significant memory concerns.
We are grateful for the many, many signs of support. Each day we hear of prayers said for Fr. Anthony. We continue to live with the unknown, while we also continue to keep Fr. Anthony close to our hearts in prayer.
Together we pray:
Loving God, you call all things into being
and bring order out of chaos.
Help us who are searching for Fr. Anthony
to recognize your will in these difficult times.
Be with Fr. Anthony whom you called to service
and open the hearts of our brothers and sisters
to help us find him.
Grant us also willing hearts to be strong in hope,
that our prayers and thoughts
may guide Fr. Anthony home.
We bring Fr. Anthony to you, Lord,
entrusting him to the mercy of the Heart of Jesus.
