President & CEO Tony Everett joined more than 600 friends and admirers of longtime NTF Board member Father George Clements in celebration of his 60th year in the priesthood. The event, held in Chicago, featured remarks by Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Father Clements and the late NTF President & CEO Gordon Johnson were co-founders of the national One Church One Child movement. Father Clements was also the first Catholic priest allowed to adopt a child; his struggles to do so were recounted in the film “The Father Clements Story” starring Lou Gossett, Jr.
