A 'gentle priest' remembered

Over the weekend, more than a thousand people attended the funeral for Father Edward Hinds, a 61-year-old parish priest at St. Patrick Church in Chatham, N.J., who was slain Oct. 23.

Father Hinds was remembered for his gentleness and for seeing all people as the children of God no matter how high or low they may have been in society.

"[Father Hinds] and I used to have our monthly talk over cookies and tea.I realized how transparent he was, and how pure his soul. … He knew the God who lived at the core of his being," recalled Msgr. Kenneth Lasch, a retired priest who delivered the eulogy.
