Bishop visits Holy Name of Jesus, receives card and ‘check’

During Mass at Holy Name of Jesus Church in Greece on Jan. 3, Deacon Joseph Placious presents Bishop Matthew H. Clark with an oversized greeting card signed by hundreds of parishioners. The card was in honor of the bishop’s 30 years as Bishop of Rochester. On the reverse side of the card was a ceremonial check for $180,000, in recognition of the fact that the parish paid off in full its debt to the diocese.
