June 25, 2011

Wow! I was totally floored by the love and warmth I received on June 25, 2011. The Mass was great with 6 brother-priest concelebrants, my cousin from Ireland as well as an Angel Guardian grad and current St Tars parishioner as readers and with my sister and 2 of my American cousins as gift bearers.
The party afterwards was one to be remembered! Wrigley Field was completely rebuilt in the St Tars gym. It was so good to see friends from all six of my assignments as well as a large group from Ancient Order of Hibernians that I chaplain.
So many others who couldn’t make it called or e-mailed or stopped me after a Sunday Mass or simply slipped a congratulatory note through the Rectory mailbox. I’ve said for 44 years that I wouldn’t trade what I do for anything in the world. Saturday, June 25th proved to me once more that I had made the right choice in life!
Special thanks must go to the Party organizing committee: Toni Colletti, Marilyn McGlade and Kathy Mullins. It was truly a day to remember.
