OLM school field dedicated to devoted Catholic grandfather

Friday, Sept. 1 was an exciting day at Our Lady of Mercy School as the day began with the opening school Mass of the Holy Spirit celebrated by Bishop Robert C. Evans, and Father Bernard A. Healey, pastor of Our Lady of Mercy Parish, who served as the homilist. Following Mass, the school community processed to the newly renovated school field, which was blessed by Bishop Evans and dedicated as the Stephen P. Lynch Sr. Memorial Field. Mr. Lynch was a devoted Catholic husband, father, and grandfather who saw five of his grandsons attend Our Lady of Mercy School, and whose family generously donated the funds for the project. Afterwards, all school families in attendance were invited to the school gymnasium for a reception to celebrate the beginning of the new school year.
