The kickoff Mass for the Diocese of Wilmington happened last week at Cathedral of St. Peter.
For those who missed it or attendees who would like to see it again, video and audio highlights, including Bishop Malooly’s complete homily can be found above.
The March 3 Mass launching the diocese sesquicentennial was the first of many celebrations planned for the next year.
The Cathedral of St. Peter is among nine churches that are part of an historic churches pilgrimage to celebrate the sesquicentennial. These churches have been designated by the diocese “either for the building or for the community that’s been there the entire time,” said Father Joseph McQuaide, chancellor of the diocese and co-chair of the sesquicentennial committee.
Events are planned throughout the next year to celebrate the sesquicentennial, including “Convocation 150” at the Ocean City (Md.) Convention Center on Nov. 3.
The sesquicentennial comes to a close on March 3, 2019, with Mass at St. Elizabeth Church in Wilmington.
