his first mass. He was assisted by
Father Flynn, who acted as assist
ant priest and Fathers Conley and
Iioche, who performed the duties of
deacon and sub-deacon, respectively.

view of the fact that Father Flynn,
n the fortieth anniversary of his
rdination, was able to participate in
vhe celebration of the first mass of
Father Garry, the third young man
to enter the priesthood from this
parish. In a short but touching ser
mon, Father Flynn emphasized the
creat responsibilities which rest up
on the shoulders of a young man
entering the priesthood and also ex
pressed his (insurmountable joy in
the fact that three young men whom
he baptized lia\e not hesitated in as
suming these responsibilities.
Among the visiting priests Who
were present at the mass this morn
ing were Fathers Stecher of Howard,
Lahecka of De Sniet, Duffey of
Woonsocket, Auer of Artesian, Ryan
of Parker, Lennon of Mobridge, Bir
