Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR, served as Good Counsel’s Chairman of the Board of Directors from March 10, 1985 until his death on October 3, 2014 which was the feast of St. Francis of Assisi.  This July 23, 2017, which would have been his 84th birthday, we celebrate life by giving thanks for Father Benedict in remembrance of his life, his work, and his legacy.

Please join us in a humble birthday celebration for the life of Father Benedict at Most Blessed Sacrament Friary, 375 13th Avenue, Newark, New Jersey 07103.  Parking entrance is located on 8th Street.

Mass at 11:00 a.m. with Fr. Fidelis Moscinski, C.F.R. as the Main Celebrant.  Mass will be followed with a luncheon at 12:00 noon.  Fr. Fidelis will then offer a reflection on Fr. Benedict at 12:45 p.m.
