NYC – 28 March – Requiem for a Priest

I received notice that a 1 year anniversary Requiem Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, 28 March in New York City at the Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel for the late Fr. John E. Halborg.

I met Fr. Halborg only a few times.  He sometimes said Mass at Holy Innocents.  However, I was moved to post about his death last year not just because he, like me, was a convert, but also because of the pretty awful way the living handled his funeral.   They pretty much completely disrespected his clearly written wishes.

So, if you are in the area, please consider attending the Requiem.

In any event, please stop and say a prayer for this priest.  Priests need prayers after their earthly lives, too.

    Thank you for this note (any many other good ones). I knew Fr Halborg for many years, lost a bit contact with him as he went into retirement and had no idea about his passing away last year. We have a deanary meeting with Holy Mass today, and a s the area dean I will offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the repose of the soul of Fr Halborg. May he rest in peace.
