A Celebration in Honor of the 60th Anniversary of the late Fr. John A. Hardon's Priestly Ordination

I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago and there was so much going on, it slipped past me. My apologies to those who sent it to me.

Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J., who spent his final years with an office on the grounds of Assumption Grotto parish in Detroit, will be honored on the 60th Anniversary of his priestly ordination. It will take place on June 16th, 2007 at Columbiere Jesuit Retirement Center Chapel.

However, they are asking that you reserve a place for the talk that follows by Monday, June 4, which is tomorrow. To RSVP, please call 248-549-9332 or 586-306-2780.

It all begins at 6:15pm with a Rosary procession to the graveside of Fr. Hardon (weather permitting), followed by a Sunday Vigil Mass at 7:00, then a talk at 8:45pm by Ms. Constance Cumbey, entitled, "My encounter with Fr. Hardon"

See this PDF file at the website of Assumption Grotto for a detailed flyer.
