Father Michael Davis was installed Oct. 24 as the new pastor of Assumption Parish in Feasterville, Bucks County, during the Saturday evening vigil Mass at the church with Bishop Michael Fitzgerald as main celebrant. He also led the official rite of installation for Father Davis, which included handing the keys of the church to the pastor. Father Davis, ordained a priest in 1987, was named pastor of the parish in August. He had served as Assumption’s parochial administrator following the sudden death of the former pastor, Father William McGeown, in May. Assumption Parish was founded in 1950 and today has more than 2,300 registered families. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
