Father Spadini remembered for dedication to priestly ministry
The people of the Dioceses of Memphis and Jackson, Mississippi are saddened by the recent death of Father Marian Spadini, 70.Father Spadini, a retired priest of the Diocese of Jackson, had served that diocese and the Diocese of Memphis for more than 40 years.He died June 8 after a long illness.
When the priests of the diocese gathered this week for their annual study days, Bishop J. Terry Steib, S.V.D. noticed the absence of Father Spadini.
"They were the trademark of Father Spadini as he tried to capture all of the words of the presenters.His gentle spirit, his quiet presence will indeed be missed.May he rest gently and quietly in the presence of God."
Visitation was held for Father Spadini at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church June 10.
Born May 27, 1934, Father Spadini was ordained on his birthday in 1962 for the Diocese of Jackson, Mississippi.He served various churches in that diocese until 1980 when he went to Rome for studies in Sacred Scripture.Upon completion of his Licentiate of Theology, Father Spadini came to Memphis to serve in priestly ministry in 1986.
Since coming to Memphis, Father Spadini served in many capacities until his retirement from the Diocese of Jackson in 2003.He served as part time chaplain at St. Peter Villa and part time associate of St. James Church in 1986.In 1989 he became the associate pastor at St. Louis Church.He then spent a year as associate pastor at Holy Rosary Church in 1992.
In 1993, he moved to St. Francis of Assisi Church in Cordova as associate pastor.Before retiring, he was associate pastor at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Germantown and also provided Liturgical assistance at the Monastery of St. Clare and DeNeuville Heights convent.
Father Giacosa, who is the cousin of Father Spadini said, "Marian and I were ordained the same year and served our Church together.
Another cousin, Father Victor Ciaramitaro said, "Marian was always a man of few words, but anytime anyone needed anything, he was there.
If a fellow priest needed assistance with Mass, confession or anything, Marian never thought twice about offering help."
Sister Maria Sampson, S.C.N. remembers Father Spadini from his year at Holy Rosary."During Father Spadini's time as associate pastor of Holy Rosary, I was always impressed by his faithful dedication to visiting the sick.
"I became Catholic in the early 1990's and Father Spadini was a big part of the R.C.I.A process for me.
