Two publications of local interest are available through All Saints Parish in Corning.
Good Old Doctor Mac, by Corning native Father Robert McNamara, pays homage to his father, Dr. Thomas A. McNamara (1856-1927), a doctor and community leader who was the city’s mayor from 1908-10.
Father McNamara, 95, is the longtime archivist and historian for the Diocese of Rochester. Copies of his book, at $12.95 each, may be obtained at All Saints’ central office, 222 Dodge Ave.
In addition, the writings of Ann Marie Rossi are on sale at the central office for $5 each. Proceeds will benefit the parish’s faith-formation program.
Mrs. Rossi was well known for her volunteer work in the local Catholic community. This is the third booklet of hers to be published by her family.
