Florence Henderson Sought Spiritual Refuge in This Church When JFK Died

Actress Florence Henderson, before she became the Brady Bunch mom, was appearing in Philadelphia at the Shubert Theater in The Girl Who Came to Supper in November 1963. She was in an elevator at the Bellevue Stratford Hotel on November 22, 1963, when she learned that President John F. Kennedy had been shot. Stunned, the actress, a devout Catholic, drifted from the hotel in search of a nearby church, ending up at tiny St. John's on South 13th Street. This information and the quote are from an article starting at A1 in the Philadelphia Inquirer, 11/22/13.
