Nebraska Catholic Priest Dies Following “Tragic” Attack at Rectory

[ad_1]
The Archdiocese of Omaha confirmed that Rev. Stephen Gutgsell, a Catholic priest in Fort Calhoun, Nebraska, was assaulted and killed during an invasion at the rectory of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call about a break-in at the church and found an alleged attacker and an injured Gutgsell. Gutgsell was taken to Nebraska Medicine, where he later died from his injuries. A suspect is in custody, and authorities have stated that there is no danger to the public. The parish is currently closed, and Archbishop George Lucas addressed the members of Gutgsell’s parish at a different location and gave mass. The Archdiocese asked for prayers for Gutgsell, his family, and the St. John the Baptist parish. It is still not clear what exactly happened during the invasion at the church, but additional information is expected to be released later in the day.
