First Rectory Chapel Mass celebrated on 12/2/2014

IMG_20141202_172931_443 (360x640)On the chilly evening of December 2, 1024, great warmth was enjoyed, as the first Mass was  celebrated in the intimate and humble setting of St. Mary’s new rectory chapel in the basement.  Father Andrew Cryans was the concelebrant with Father John Rosson in this most personal Mass, resurrecting otherwise “wasted” space as well as pictures, the altar, the tabernacle, etc. from various parishioners and priest throughout the history of St. Mary’s.  The Mass was dedicated to the memories of Fr. Cryans’ brother Jeffrey, Julie Auriemma’s husband Tom as well as Cathy Raddatz’s brother George who perished on 9-11.  Those parishioners in attendance were Jean and Lou Nicholson, Jessica Root, Laura Jane Alexander, Julie Auriemma, Suzanne and John Rudy, Betsy Jay, Cathy Raddatz and Donna Gerard.  This cost-saving chapel will be used for all regularly scheduled weekday Masses on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
