Some of us might live to be 101 like Father Carl Gracely, but few of us will have the profound impact on so many lives as he did through his tireless chaplaincy efforts. must have known what a saint on earth he had in Father Carl so he kept him at his task.
As the founder ofprograms at and Medical Centers he saw his congregants at their best of times and in their worst, in the joys of birth and grief of a lost loved one. He plied those halls like a sailor with a trusty compass knowing just where to be and just when to be there.
We at‘s loved him as one of our own, but we always knew we shared him with a much larger community.
