Father Grohe’s Presence


Re: Father Grohe: A 50-Year Blessing for Esopus Church (CNY, Editor’s Report, June 20).

It was a pleasant surprise to see an article about 94-year-old Father Eugene Grohe in Catholic New York. Father Grohe is a kind priest who always took the time out of his busy schedule to visit Kingston Catholic School in Ulster County. He came monthly and visited every class to say hello to the teachers and students. He always reminded them he was praying for them and usually left them with a holy card. He truly is a blessing and will be greatly missed by our community. Thank you for dedicating a story to highlight his long and remarkable ministry.
