Father Benedict's Memorial Birthday Mass Homily

Posted by | August 24, 2015 | News | No Comments

A highlight during this summer of Good Counsel’s 30th anniversary year was a birthday celebration we had on July 23rd for our dearly departed co-founder, Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR.  Father Benedict meant so much to all of us at Good Counsel, and it was heart warming to see over 110 invited guests come out during a weekday into the heart of Newark, New Jersey to participate in a memorial Mass and to share lunch with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal inside their Friary.

It was a blessing to be with Father Benedict’s sister, Marjule Drury, who read at Mass, and the Sisters of the Renewal, who provided the music.
