 Father Mychal Judge was a Franciscan friar and Catholic priest who served as a chaplain to the New York City Fire Department.  Born in Brooklyn, Mychal dedicated his life to helping others and was known for his extraordinary works of charity and deep spirituality.  While offering aid and prayers for the rescuers at the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001, Father Mychal Judge was injured and killed.  He was 68 years old. Each September 11th, I attend a Memorial Service at St. Bart’s Cathedral and at the 2013 service, members of “Mychal’s Message” handed out prayer cards memorializing a man that impacted countless lives. This is a photo of the card.
