RIP: Helen Hull Hitchcock, 1939-2014

In your charity, please pray for the blessed repose of the soul of Helen Hull Hitchcock, who died yesterday, October 20th, at the age of 75. Helen was editor of Adoremus Bulletin, the monthly publication of the Adoremus – Society for the Renewal of the Sacred Liturgy, which she cofounded in 1995 with Fathers Joseph Fessio, S.J. and Jerry Pokorski. She was also the founding director of Women for Faith & Family and editor of its quarterly journal, Voices. She has published many articles and essays in a variety of Catholic journals, and was the author/editor of The Politics of Prayer: Feminist Language and the Worship of God (Ignatius Press, 1992), a collection of essays on issues involved in translation.

Helen is survived by her husband James Hitchcock, professor emeritus of history at St. Louis University and author of The Recovery of the Sacred: Reforming the Reformed Liturgy (Ignatius Press, 1995), and their four daughters and six grandchildren. May they have the comforts and consolation of faith in the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
