Episcopalians remember Bataan hero priest

From New Mexico-

Episcopalians will gather at churches in New Mexico to remember the life of the Rev. Frederick B. “Ted” Howden Jr. at 11 a.m. on Friday.

Howden gave his life that the soldiers in his charge might live. The Right Reverend Michael L. Vono, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande, invites all Bataan survivors, military personnel, veterans, their families and the public to join in this remembrance of Father Howden on the 73rd anniversary of his death on Dec. 11, 1942.

“We must remember and honor those who have given their lives and those who have served and continue to serve our country,” Bishop Vono said. “We dedicate this date to the memory of Father Howden, and we honor all those who offer themselves in the service of freedom.”
