This Friday, 90 years after that historic day, we will celebrate Father Ed Harnett’s birthday, and we will thank God for the gift of his life.
We invite you to send Fr. Harnett a card with your well wishes. You can drop your card at the SFX parish office (524 Ninth Street) or the SJ rectory (1747 Lake), and we will make sure he gets them. Our goal is to have him receive 90 cards on his 90th.
Father Harnett has been here since his mid-fifties, and he was in Wilmette as an associate pastor as a young priest. Although Father Harnett hails from Chicago’s West Side, the people of Saints JFX have become his family and Wilmette is his home.
Join us this Friday in wishing a great man of faith, who has dedicated almost half of his life to the spiritual welfare of the people of Wilmette, a very happy 90th birthday!
