In Memoriam

Within the hallowed walls of the historic Church of the Holy Trinity in Georgetown, D.C. worshiped the late President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the first Catholic to hold that exalted office. This martyred chief executive also prayed in this church as a member of the House of Representatives and as a United States Senator when he resided in Georgetown. It was here that he attended his last Mass in Washington of the Feast of All Saints, November 1, 1963, shortly before his untimely death by an assassinís bullet on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas.

May he rest in peace eternal.

“Home is the sailor, home from the sea, and the hunter home from the hill.”
(From Robert Louis Stevensonís poem Requiem.)
