Bishop Malooly and the priests of the Diocese of Wilmington concelebrated Mass at St. Elizabeth Church on March 3 to recognize the closing of the diocesan sesquicentennial celebration.

Highlights from the Mass, including the bishop’s homily, are included in a video produced by the diocese office of communications.

The video includes music provided by a joint choir from Saint Elizabeth and the Cathedral of Saint Peter, embellished with brass and timpani.

Also included in the video are presentations to a group of people who completed their sesquicentennial “passports” and were recognized at Mass.

Those receiving awards for the achievement were Jerry Alan and Michel Peco Bilton, Joseph O. And Veronica E. Birmingham, John and Darlene Cahill, Thomas and Ann Carter, Betty DiFilippo, Patricia and Wayne Dooley, James and Charlotte Dugar, Edward and Pat Fitzgerald, Michael J. Garrison, Betty L. Gregg, Vincent (Jim) and Marlene Jacono, Edward H. Joyner, III, Father Brian S. Lewis, Stephen, Katie, Natalie, Stephen McKinley, Dorothy Onizuk, Priscilla Onizuk, Rebecca J.
