We were blessed with a beautiful day for a beautiful celebration! Following the 9:00 Family Mass Celebration, families began to gather outside to enjoy breakfast or lunch as the kids played in the bouncy houses and delighted in balloon animals. Our 11:00 Mass with Cardinal Sean O’Malley, concelebrated by Fr. Powers, Fr. Connelly, Fr. McMillan, and Msgr. Lind, was a prayerful and moving celebration of the life of our parish – past, present and future. To read the full version of our Parish History, which was excerpted in last Sunday’s bulletin, please visit the website. The audio from the 11:00 Mass, which will include the Cardinal’s homily and the beautiful music of our Parish Choir, will be posted to the website soon.
