There were no aisles or pews for a Mass on Saturday, April 29 because it was celebrated not in a church but in McPherson Square Park in the city’s Kensington section. Before the outdoor public MassĀ a procession of faithful from the neighborhood and the celebrants, Fathers Liam Murphy and Joseph Devlin and assisted by Deacon Steve Guckin, wound through the streets from Mother of Mercy House to the park. The Mass put a focus on addictions, with prayer for those who have died from overdoses and for those still struggling with addiction.
