It was a joyful Mass this past Sunday, Sept. 11, at our St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church in Somerville where Bishop David P. Talley was Celebrant for the Installation of Fr. James Martell as Pastor.
Bishop Talley gave a beautiful Homily. The Deacons, Altar Servers and Seminarian provided excellent support, as usual, along with great help from the Knights of Columbus, Council 14482. Also, the Cantor, Choir and Music were amazing.
After the Holy Mass, the Parishioners held a wonderful looking Installation Reception for Fr. Martell with delicious pasta and salad dishes and desserts. God be Praised!
Note: Fr. James Martell is also Dean of the Southeastern Deanery for our Catholic Diocese of Memphis.
