Father Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., served as Good Counsel’s Chairman of the Board of Directors from March 10, 1985 until his death on October 3, 2014, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi.  Since Father Benedict would have turned 85 this July, we will gather on Thursday, July 26, 2018 to celebrate his 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.

The celebration will begin with Mass at 11:00 a.m. with Fr. John Anthony Boughton, C.F.R. as the Main Celebrant.  A luncheon will follow at 12:00 noon.  Fr. John Anthony will then offer a reflection on Fr. Benedict at 12:45 p.m.
