On Thursday, April 18, 2024, Archbishop Nelson Perez celebrated the funeral Mass for our long-time pastor, Monsignor John J. Conahan. Many parishioners, past and present, joined together to prayfully honor this man, a past shepherd, who guided them through the sacraments and brought them closer to Christ.


This page is a tribute to him, including the words of Deacon Alvin Clay and Father Leonard Peterson, both homilists for the Masses held in Monsignor's honor. Kathy Clay was the creator of the slideshow, which will be featured here also.
