SWG Mass for Breast Cancer Awareness 2016
Thank you to everyone who attended the Breast Cancer Awareness Mass at St. Therese Church on October 19th. It was truly beautiful to see a community come together to pray for one another and all those who have been affected by this terrible disease. A huge thank you to Fr. Dan Sweeney, Fr. Nick Mastrangelo and Fr. Terry O'Connor, celebrating the Mass and Tom Coyne for the amazing music. Fr. Dan's homily was especially touching as he was able to connect on a personal level by comparing his journey through cancer with others who share his experience. God bless all of those people and families who are battling, have survived or who have lost the battle with breast cancer or any cancer.
