Fr. Leonard Villa's 29th Anniversary of Ordination (Nov. 15, 2015) - Church of the Holy Innocents

Below are photos of the 10:30AM Mass at Holy Innocents this past Sunday, November 15, 2015 (6th Resumed Sunday after Epiphany).
 
Because it was Fr. Villa's 29th Anniversary of Ordination to the Priesthood, the special collects for himself were prayed and the solemn Te Deum was chanted at the end of the Mass.
 
After the Mass, a very nice reception took place in the parish hall attended by many parishioners and Fr. Villa's family.
