As he celebrated the 11 a.m. Mass at St. Agnes Cathedral on his first Christmas as bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, Bishop John Barres spoke about how Pope Francis has emphasized the migrant status of the Holy Family and how we all need to be cognizant of those among us today who are in the same situation. He spent time before and after Mass greeting parishioners and guests, as well as members of the media.
