Our Mother of Sorrows parishioners surprise pastors

On Wednesday, April 22, at 11:00 a.m., Fathers Bill Coffas and Anthony Nketiah were surprised to hear many horns honking in the Our Mother of Sorrows Church parking lot in Greece. At first, Father Coffas thought it might be visitors for the food pantry, but when he looked outside, he saw a dozen cars lined up in a row. He beckoned Father Nketiah to come outside. As they stood together at the top of the steps, the people exited their cars, held up signs, and prayed three Hail Marys together. The youth of the parish presented Fathers Coffas and Nketiah with colorful hand-made signs expressing their joy, love, and thanks. This was perhaps the largest assembly of parishioners since the last Mass was celebrated at Our Mother of Sorrows in March.
