On Thursday morning, June 2, 2022, many gathered for the funeral mass for Brother Jim Rukavina, SS.CC, at St. Joseph Church in Fairhaven, MA. The SSCC Provincial Lane Akiona, SS.CC. was the principal celebrant. Fr. David Lupo, SS.CC., a novice classmate of Bro. Jim delivered the homily. Bro. Paul Alves, SS.CC. shared in the eulogy a beautiful mark of remembrance, saying that Bro. Jim was unassuming, a virtue Christ himself had. Bro. Jim, was a real professional in disguise and a humble servant of the Lord, one that didn't question but ministered without hesitation. With a simile always on his face, he lived life as a successor of St. Damien. May Perpetual Light shine upon you, James.
