Tonight: Memorial Masses for Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

In Detroit, Illinois, Texas, Wisconsin, there will be Masses celebrated for Servant of God, Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J., whose cause for sainthood is being pursued.  Fr. McDermott, the postulator for the cause, will be at Assumption Grotto on June 18th.  Fr. Hardon spent  his final years at Assumption Grotto and was a spiritual director and confessor to many.

This was featured in a post at the site for Fr. Hardon's cause from Cardinal Raymond L. Burke, who led this effort while in St. Louis:
