Well done my good and faithful servant...
Come, share your master's joy.

Matthew 25:21

Thank you, Deacon Joe

Deacon Joe Codespoti passed onto his eternal reward on the evening of April 22, 2020.


As a deacon of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Gary, Deacon Joe formed many bonds and touched numerous lives throughout his rich years of service. Across parishes, through Cursillos retreats, in prison ministry and most recently as one of our most beloved deacons at St. John the Evangelist Parish, he lived as a visible witness of the Gospel and the love of Christ.

Our deepest condolences and ongoing prayers go out to the Codespoti family, especially to his wife, Theresa, a sweet and dear friend to many at SJE.

You may be gone for a short time, but you won't be forgotten.


We love you so, Deacon Joe.

- Father Sammie Maletta and the SJE team
