BROCKTON, MA: Cardinal Seán O'Malley led a special Mass to celebrate Cardinal Spellman High School's 60th Anniversary on Wednesday, April 24.
The school was bustling with great anticipation of the Cardinal's arrival with a packed auditorium full of Spellman students, parents, alumni, board members and special guests including Tom Carroll, new Superintendent of the Archdiocese of Boston.
The Cardinal presided at Mass, reminding students that "Jesus wants to be invited into our lives." Following Mass, students gathered at the altar for a group photo followed by a reception in the school's Library Learning Commons.
Campus Minister Jason Deramo was also delighted to meet with the Cardinal. When asked about him he said "Having the Cardinal here is a reminder that we're part of something much larger than our school. His presence is a testament to that."
