Obituary: Father Murton Miller

 

Rev. Murton Miller died on Saturday, August 3, 2019.  He was 93.

Father Miller was ordained on July 1, 1962, for the Diocese of Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan (merged with the Archdiocese of Regina). 

In 1994, when he retired, he took up residence in the Archdiocese of Edmonton. During that time, he offered assistance in parishes throughout the Archdiocese when pastors needed a replacement. Among the parishes he served are Holy Cross, Grande Cache; St. Theresa, Ma-Me-O Beach; St. Emeric, Edmonton; St. Agnes, Mayerthorpe; and St. Elizabeth, Evansburg.

We extend our condolences and prayers to his family and friends, to his brother priests in the Archdiocese of Regina and here in the Archdiocese of Edmonton.  

We pray for the repose of his soul. 

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Andrew Parish, 12810-111 Avenue, Edmonton, on Thursday, August 8, at 3 p.m., presided by Archbishop Richard Smith.
