I was just looking at the first few pages of Good Counsel’s 30th anniversary online journal and I am still struck by seeing a few photos of Father Benedict Groeschel, our deceased co-founder, who helped us in so many ways begin this work back in 1985.
As many of you know, Father Benedict passed away last year on the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, and we at Good Counsel still mourn the loss of the Franciscan Friar of the Renewal who served as our Chairman of the Board of Directors from our start right up until his death.
If you have not already done so, I invite you now to view Good Counsel’s 30th anniversary online journal.
There are interesting photos, stories, and reflections covering our three decades, and an inspirational message from Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York.
The prayers of so many, including Father Benedict, have helped Good Counsel tremendously over the last 30 years. Let us now look forward in prayer to a brighter future that cares more lovingly for homeless mothers and their children.
Good Counsel Executive Director
