Fr Owens, the family friend

In from James Donnelly in Canada comes a smile about his family’s longtime friendship with Fr Joseph Owens, whose death we noted in 2005. He also sent along a picture of Fr Owens, dating from 1957:

Father Owens was a family friend for many years. My Father was an alter boy for Father Owens around 1932-34 in Norwich Ont Canada. Father Owens was a frequent visitor to our home for many years. I have attached a photo from 1957 when I was 5 years old. This photo was taken in Waterloo Ont. where I grew up.
