From St. Louis, this word from Kenrick-Glennon seminary on Facebook:

It is with great sorrow that we mourn the death of 14-year-old Brett Haubrich, who died peacefully last night, January 10th, at home and surrounded by his family. We fondly remember the day when, as his wish with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Brett joined 11 Kenrick-Glennon seminarians in the 2015 Holy Thursday foot washing ceremony as a “Priest for a Day.” Brett’s love for the Eucharist and priesthood as he battled brain cancer continues to inspire others – a wish for a day will last forever. Please keep Brett and his entire family in your prayers.

Read the backstory, from the St. Louis Review.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him...
