Monsignor Domenick T. Graziadio celebrated his retirement Mass May 5 with his Pius X parish family and family and friends from around the country. Several clergy members from the Plainview Interfaith community joined the celebration. A tent had to be erected in order to accommodate the overflow crowd at Mass. A dinner party for 500 people followed in the gym and parish hall. Several ministry leaders spoke to tell the guests and Monsignor how much his 12-year-term at St. Pius X has meant to them.
