Fr. Michael Dineen, priest-son of St. Francis Borgia Parish, celebrated his 60th anniversary of being ordained to the priesthood on May 31 at the 11 a.m. Mass. The church was at capacity, with many out-of-town visitors in addition to well-wishing parishioners. The Knights of Columbus provided an honor guard, priest friends took part in the liturgy, and music was provided by the Bell Choir and the Youth Choir. During the Offertory, friends and relatives offered praise for Fr. Mike and his career as a priest. After Mass, the celebration continued with a reception and luncheon in the church hall.

Fr. Mike has been helping us out quite regularly these past years at morning and weekend Masses, funerals and other liturgical services. We are blessed to have him celebrate with us.
