Memorial Mass planned for Fr. Neuhaus in St. Patrick’s Cathedral
Tomorrow, January 8, will mark the one year anniversary of the death of Fr. Richard John Neuhaus, the famous intellectual, Catholic convert and editor-in-chief of First Things. To observe the occasion, admirers and friends of the late priest will gather in New York City for a memorial Mass on Friday evening.
The memorial Mass will be celebrated by the Holy See’s delegate to the United Nations, Archbishop Celestino Migliore. The homily will be delivered by Fr. George Rutler, and Fr. Benedict Groeschel will offer a post-Communion reflection.
The liturgy will take place on Friday, January 8 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, located in New York City.

My heart still aches when I think of Fr. Neuhaus, who was such a holy priest and a strong pro-life advocate. He is sorely missed.
