Goodbye, Father Piers -- August 1, 2011

Yesterday at a special 11am mass, we said goodbye to Father Piers Lahey, who has been pastor at Good Shepherd for 13 years. There was an excellent turnout. Father Jess Labor, our new pastor, concelebrated. All the deacons were there, and a big choir. Father Piers gave a nice homily, meditating on four words, which I wish I had written them down. I think they were mystery, community (?), something and church. We're going to miss him. Here Father gives the blessing before lunch in the gym.
