Passing Away of Msgr. Hurley

I have been remiss in not posting over the last month or so.  Work, my parish organization, and other things have kept me from posting.  And there have been many things happening.

Therefore, let me start with the passing away of Msgr. Leonard Hurley.

May eternal rest be granted unto him, O Lord.   And let perpetual light shine upon him.  May his soul, and the souls of all the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.


Monsignor Leonard F. Hurley, the Catholic priest who conducted President John F. Kennedy’s Requiem Mass narration for a worldwide television and radio audience in 1963, died April 27 at a health-care center in Washington. He was 84.
The death was announced by the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington. No cause was given.
Locally, Msgr. Hurley was best known as the founding pastor of Germantown’s Mother Seton Parish, where he served from 1974 until 1987. A boulevard in Germantown, Md., was named in his honor, to recognize his community work.
