INSTALLATION OF FATHER JOHN AS PASTOR – 13 May 2017 Entering the Church Incensing the altar Beginning the Mass Brother Albert reads the First Reading Fr. John introducing the representatives from the different Mass sites and ministries A special Thank You to the Musicians Fr. John kneeling before the Bishop Receiving the Bishop’s blessing for the new assignment Fr. John preaching Applause is always welcome Fr. John embracing the people Following the Prayer of the Faithful, which was read in 10 languages, reflecting the variety of the English Language Parish Blessing children is always a special joy This isn’t a great picture but I baptized this baby, and it is always good to see him PICTURES FROM THE RECEPTION AFTER THE INSTALLATION – 13 May 2017 Before the Crowds arrived Bishop Shomali’s cake – his birthday was the following Monday and we were going to surprise him – but he left right after Mass. Surprise! Fr. John actually got a piece of his own cake, and the frosting has “Sheehan” on it Sometimes you have to take pictures yourself It’s never official without a “selfie” too many choices Making the tough decisions Notice the child whose head just reaches the top of the table The only thing better than good food is when someone brings it to you Chocolate with strawberries. Yum. Always room for one more My favorite picture of the day – if only every parishioner were as happy as she is.
