Father Evan Harkins to celebrate a First Mass, Sunday, June 6th at Old St. Patrick

A year and a half ago, during the Consecration and re-Dedication of Old St. Patrick, Evan Harkins served on the altar as a seminarian. He is now a priest, being ordained on May 29th by our beloved Bishop, Robert Finn at the Cathedral. He shown above incensing the congregation during that ceremony.

At a special Mass next Sunday, June 6th (10:15 a.m.) at which the new priest will be the celebrant, Father Harkins will say a First Mass. After Mass, Father Harkins will give the congregation the opportunity to receive a "first blessing". An opportunity exists during this first blessing to receive a Plenary Indulgence. For your information and edification, there is an interesting web page at which you can read of other occasions at which one may receive this indulgence. (This photo is from the blogger's archive).
