Bishop John Barres celebrated a votive Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Church of St. Mary in Manhasset Tuesday, November 6, for the community of The Schools of Saint Mary. During Mass, he spoke of Saints Pier Frassatti and Katherine Drexel as guides for their lives. As has become his custom, the bishop specifically challenged the senior class to commit to a radical fidelity to attendance at Mass, now and when they go to college. Bishop Barres also visited the school and sat in on an apologetics class. Ed Casey photos.
