St. Joseph’s Novena Mass Celebration

A small St. Joseph’s Novena Mass was celebrated yesterday by Fr. Benetti at the Bishop Fenwick High School Chapel to bless the annual altar for the Gloucester Novena women. I do not know most of them by name, but Felicia Ciaramitaro Mohan and her mother Pat as well as Sefatia Romeo Theken made the arrangements and attended the Mass. Several others were a big help as well, but I unfortunately do not know their names. The Mass was livestreamed and is available here on the Good Morning Gloucester blog.

It was a blessing on its own to be able to attend and share such an event especially at this hopeful time in the pandemic crisis.
