All Saints Day Mass
With celebrant Fr. Garrett ‘62, the Flyers sports teams met in Darby Auditorium at 9:00 a.m. for Mass. Fr. Garrett discussed three levels of saints. The first are the well known saints such as Mother Teresa. Next are the daily saints such as our parents and those who take care of us. Third are us. We are called to be saints and lead holy lives. The homily was a beautiful message for all attendees before they went off to practice.
