Happy 150th to the Church in Rochester!

Father O'Connor and I were honored to concelebrate the 150th anniversary Mass for the Diocese of Rochester at the kind invitation of one of Saint John's most generous friends, Bishop Salvatore Matano.  Our Rochester seminarians served the Mass, which was celebrated by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York.  It was a wonderful celebration by a wonderful Diocese!  Here's a picture as Bishop emeritus Clark and Bishop Matano reverence the Altar at the beginning of the Solemn Mass.
