Worcester Wedding

Last weekend, I had the chance to attend a wedding in Worcester, Massechussetts of Liz Parker and Joe Gagne.  It was celebrated in the Memorial Chapel of Holy Cross College.  I was only a few days there but really enjoyed the time – not least the chance to spend some time with the Jesuit Community at Holy Cross.  My thanks to Fr. Jim Hayes and all the others I met there.  The hospitality was superb and the chance to spend a bit of time on campus most enjoyable.

The wedding was a prayerful celebration and took place at 10am!  A bit earlier for a wedding than I’d be used to!  Fr. Jim was celebrant of the Wedding Mass and I preached the “cupla focail” (few words).  The church was amazing and a credit to all who care for it so well.  Indeed I had the chance on Friday to meet some of the caretaker team and they were so obviously proud of the chapel.

I was glad to meet some old friends at the wedding, Corky and Jeanie Korves as well as Carrie and Guillermo and also to meet some new people as well – The Hodgens Family, Andrew (from Wigan) who flew in from Ohio and many of Liz and Joe’s respective families.

    Was glad to see you made it back to Holy Cross for the wedding. Yes that church is beautiful, as I get to Worcester for work I have seen the campus and chapel. Was good to see you at St Nathy’s the week before for confession. As a graduate of LeMoyne in Syracuse I believe in the value of a Jesuit education.

    God bless to you and yours!
