August 23, 2013. It is with sadness that we learned today that the founding Archbishop of the United Catholic Church, Robert M. Bowman, died yesterday at his home in Melbourne FL with is beloved wife Maggie at his side. Fr. Bob's visionary spirit architected a church model that was uniquely American, yet in tune with the best of conciliar catholic churches worldwide, and his convictions and inner strength launched it at a time that was not friendly to moving outside the recognized-denomination box. Undaunted, Bob continued to move the church forward when most others would have retreated. His many ecclesial children have much to be grateful for, and are blessed, to have worked under and with Fr. Bob; he will be sorely missed by us all. His wife Maggie has asked other groups he was associated with in his active pursuit of social justice to collect condolences and allow the family privacy, and we will do the same. We also ask that you keep Maggie, Fr. Joe, and all his family in your thoughts and prayers, that they might be comforted and held close in their grief by Christ, whom Bob served in this life with all his heart. May you rest in peace Bob, and rise in glory.
