St. Francis Memorial Mass – 2009

For the first time  Gladys is sitting without Louis in the chapel. Our coffee and donuts conversation often starts with his ‘still above ground’ response to my ‘How are you?’.

Louis H. Wojtaszczyk, class of ’42, died on June 13, 2008. That same day, the feast of St. Anthony, Fr. Anthony Konieczny also died. Fr. Anthony concelebrated last year’s mass .

We meet once a year at the Alumni mass. Each year Louis gave life to stories I’d heard about Fr. Justin. Father Justin died in 1959, the year before I’d started at St. Francis. A Facebook video about Fr. Justin (13 mins.) includes his role in starting up SFHS (at 5:30).

Gladys’ family tells us she insisted on coming to see ‘her Canadian friends’.
