“He spoke the truth always surrounded with love and compassion.” Fr. Mariusz Koch, C.F.R.

Fr. Mariusz spoke the above words about Father Benedict Groeschel last year as we gathered on Father’s birthday.  Once again, we invite you to join us as we gather on Saturday, July 23, 2016, what would have been his 83rd birthday, to celebrate Father Benedict’s life in thanksgiving for all that he accomplished for the poorest of the poor and the mothers and babies of Good Counsel.


Please join us at Most Blessed Sacrament Friary, 375 13th Avenue, Newark, NJ 07103 on July 23rd at 11:00 AM for Mass with main celebrant, Fr. Glen Sudano, C.F.R.  We will have a  light lunch at 12:00 noon followed at 12:45 by a reflection on Father Benedict offered by Father Sudano.

Kindly call 201-795-0637 or send an email to by July 15th to let us know if you will join us so we can plan accordingly.
