Book by Daniel J. Kennedy, Sr.

ENDORSEMENTS

"As a priest, Father Dan was himself a bridge between God and his people. In his ministry, the mercy of Christ and the love of God was revealed to us. We give thanks to God for the gift of his life and his priesthood." 

"We all miss Danny. We all have fond memories of Danny, and we want you all to know how meaningful it is for our family to celebrate Danny's life and his ministry as a priest."

"247 Days is the story of a dynamic young man that God called to Holy Orders. His priestly life was 24/7 and his impact from his 247 days as a priest lasts forever. All those men who are considering a priestly vocation, as well as their parents, siblings, friends and all those that encourage and promote priestly vocations should read 247 Days!"
