The Most Reverend Carmel Henry Carfora, was the first bishop of the Old Roman Catholic Church in America. Archbishop Carfora entered into the Eternal Kingdom in 1958 and was laid to rest at Irving Park Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois. At one time a tombstone marked the final resting place of this great servant of Holy Mother Church. Unfortunately, due to repeated defacing and vandalism, the cemetery was forced to remove the tombstone. One of our goals is to restore Archbishop Carfora’s place of rest to the dignity befitting this servant of God. If you are interested in donating to this great cause, you can place your donation in an envelope marked “Archbishop Carfora Memorial Fund” with your Sunday offering or donations can be made online through PayPal.
