The Rev. Msgr. Howard Henry Hotard
It is with the greatest sadness that I bid farewell to Father Hotard. I cannot remember any other priest who demonstrated the breadth and depth of devotion and reverence to the Mass and the Holy Eucharist. Forever gone are those most beautiful and memorable Christmas and Easter masses at Our Lady of Lourdes which my wife, sons and I enjoyed for the 17 years before Father's retirement. Festina cum Deo, Monsignor.
