Heritage Day Mass

On Tuesday, Nov. 26 we will celebrate our annual Heritage Day Mass at 10:30 a.m. Msgr. Joseph Hendricks, pastor of Saint Brigid of Kildare, will be our presider and homilist.

Heritage Day began in 1999 on the 100th anniversary of the death of our namesake, Bishop John Ambrose Watterson.

We celebrate it in his memory to give thanks for the gift God has blessed all of us, especially Catholic Education which was very dear to Bishop Watterson. It is fitting that we gather just before the Thanksgiving holiday.
