Father Groeschel's golden jubilee

One of America's best-loved and most recognizable priests, Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR, is celebrating his 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.

Father Groeschel, a noted psychologist and founding member of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, is host of the popular EWTN program "Sunday Night Live" and a popular author. We at Our Sunday Visitor have special affection for the friar, who was written or edited OSV several books.

He's also co-founder and chairman of Good Counsel Homes, which provides homes and long-term support for new and expectant mothers and their babies in Hoboken, N.J.

There will be a special Mass to celebrate Father Groeschel's golden jubilee on Oct. 18 at Holy Family Church in Nutley, N.J. It will be open to the public.
