Bishop Thomas Tobin travelled to Our Lady of Good Help Parish, Mapleville on Sunday, Oct. 9, to perform the Rite of Installation for Father Jose Parathanal, C.M.I., the new pastor of Our Lady of Good Help Parish. The parish also includes the Saint Theresa Shrine in Nasonville. Father Jose is also administrator of St. Patrick Parish, Harrisville. In his homily, Bishop Tobin said that the rite represents “a significant moment for both the parish and the pastor,” adding that he knew Father Parathanal would be “completely committed” to the faith communities under his pastoral care.
