Kevin Barry Division # 3 in Indianapolis, Indiana, offered congratulations to AOH President Jim McGinley and Mass Chair Dan Shea for a job well done! They coordinated our Nov. 2nd Mass for deceased 2014 AOH members at St. Philip Neri Church. The Mass had a large AOH representation with Eucharistic ministers, lectors and ushers administered by the membership. Special thanks went to Fr. Chris Wadelton for a beautiful service and AOH member Charlie Withem for his efforts as a lector. Bagpipes and drums led all from church after the service.
Deceased members in 2014 were Arnold Dowdy, Rev. Larry P. Crawford, 74; Rev. Thomas J. Murphy, 82; Michael Richard “Dick” Coffey, Sr., 88; Michael Murphy, Jerome “Jerry” T. Cahill, 80; John A. Hayes, 72; Rev. James H. Rogers, 100; and Joseph G. Hegarty, 94.
A reception followed at the Tin Comet Coffee House, owned by AOH member Matt Davis. We had a packed house!
