In Memoriam
Requiscat In Pace: Father Ernesto Arbeláez, S.J.

Father Ernesto Arbeláez, S.J., died Sunday, March 20, in Regis Infirmary at Sacred Heart Jesuit Center in Los Gatos, California. Fr. Arbeláez remained a member of the Colombia Province but was applied to the California Province. Ernesto was born in Pereira, Colombia, on March 3, 1925, entered the Society on August 16, 1940 and pronounced final vows at Manizales on August 15, 1961.

In 1983 Fr. Ernesto came to California and worked in parish ministry in the Diocese of Stockton for 25 years, followed by two years' service as chaplain at Santa Teresita Medical Center in Duarte. He came to Los Gatos in late 2010 to care for his failing health. May he rest in peace!

Ernesto's soul.
