Monday, January 23, 2012, 5:30 PM - 12:00 AM
I am extending an invitation to you to participate in the memorial service for Father Jonathan Niehaus, ISP (June 5, 1960 – January 19, 2012) being held at the H.L. Grant Catholic Student Center – St Jude Chapel on Monday, January 23 at 5:30 pm. A reception in the CSC lobby follows the memorial Mass.
Fr Jonathan served the Catholic students and permanent community of Texas State as Pastor and Director of the Catholic Student Center from October, 2006 until June, 2009. Under his direction, many exciting things began to occur at the CSC, the more notable being the naming of St Jude’s Chapel, employment of a Development Director, and introduction of student missionary programs with St Paul’s Outreach. An avid researcher and scholar, he has written several books, including a history of Catholic Programs at the University. At the time of his death, he was serving as Librarian/Historian for his Order in Germany, the Schoenstatt Fathers. In addition he had the responsibility of translating their founder’s writings into English.
An opportunity will exist to comment or share some thoughts about Fr Jonathan at the reception. Please let me know if you wish to share your thoughts.
Additional parking is available at the Frost Bank lots, the Broadway National Bank, and the Undergraduate Admissions Building
A memorial fund in honor of Fr Jonathan has been set up at the CSC. All donations will be used to support the missionary efforts of Saint Paul’s Outreach operating through the CSC.
In the Heart of Jesus,
Fr. Brian Eilers
