On March 24th and 25th of 2023 there will be an event held at Holy Cross High School in Waterbury, CT called 'Reflections of Father Francis E. Grogan, C.S.C.'. All details of the event can be found on the school's website:

Friday's events are open to alumni only while Saturday's events are open to the public. Father Frank was the first Chaplin at Holy Cross High School, arriving in 1969 and leaving in 1976. His spiritual strength and his ability to mentor adolescents has rippled through the lives of many over the past 50 years. We hope that this event will give his spirit a reawakening within the halls of Holy Cross.
