Most Reverend Bishop Peter Libasci celebrates Mass at St. Thomas
In addition to Bishop Libasci, we were also pleased to have the Reverend Andrew Cryans of St. Thomas More Parish in Durham, the Reverend Gary Belliveau of Corpus Christi Parish in Portsmouth, and the Reverend Marc Montminy of St. Michael Parish in Exeter assisting Bishop Libasci in celebrating Catholic Schools Week Mass.
Also attending Mass, were our very own Sister Georganne Pearson, Sister Catherine Goodell and Sister Mary Jo Walsh, Principal of St. Patrick School in Portsmouth, NH.
In his homily, Bishop Labasci made an impassioned plea that as anointed children of God, we must strive to be our best selves--to live our best lives. And, for each of us, as Catholics, to look at our lives in the light of God; to glorify Him, to listen to Him with our hearts- to move in the direction of living out our faith to do the right thing.
During Mass, St. Thomas students presented Bishop Libasci with gifts representing Catholic School’s week theme of faith, academics, and service, all central to the mission of St. Thomas Aquinas High School.
