Saint Monica's 100 #2 -- October 23, 2011

Today I took my mom to the special 10:30 mass to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Saint Monica's parish.  Bishop Robert McElroy was the celebrant.  Archbishop Niederauer is still recovering from his heart trouble.  Concelebrants included pastor Father Greene, Father Sakowski, pastor of Saint Thomas Apostle, two other priests, and a deacon.  Father Greene started his homily by mentioning that there were three things in the church to remind us of the first mass in January, 1911.  He held up the chalice used in that mass.  He mentioned a 101 year old lady who was there, and he mentioned a 90 year old lady whose mother and grandparents were there.

There was a buffet in the large hall after mass.  I met one classmate and several parents of classmates.

The weather was nice and warm.  I took the photo this morning.
