Your prayers are respectfully requested for the repose of the soul of Father JaVan Joseph Saxon who passed away on Sunday, July 11 at his residence at St. Mary Church in Laurinburg following a sickness due to lymphoma.

The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, July 15, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at Saint Mary Catholic Church in Laurinburg with the Most Reverend Luis Rafael Zarama, principal celebrant.
Burial will be in the priests’ section at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish cemetery in Newton Grove, with the procession to the cemetery directly following the Funeral Mass.
Through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Priests and Saint John Vianney, may Father Saxon know the fullness of God’s peace, the abundance of His mercy and the Light of His Kingdom this day.
United in Christ.
