President Gordon B. Hinckley, LDS leader, passes away
Writing from Salt Lake City I cannot help but note the passing last night of LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley. President Hinckley was the fifteenth president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and led the LDS for 12 years. President Hinckley was ninety-seven at the time of his passing, which was due to causes incident to age. The Church-owned Deseret Morning News has many articles on the life and contributions of President Hinckley. We have also posted condolences on our parish blog, The People of St. Mary Magdalene.
