Celebrated Mass Saturday evening for Deacon Don and Mrs. Pat McArdle’s family reunion at their daughter and son-in-law’s beach home on Hilton Head Island. While the adults are not in the photo but behind their children, there were about 32 in the house for the Mass. Deacon Don was the deacon at my ordination Mass in 1980 and one of the deacons at Most Holy Trinity in Augusta when I became pastor there in 1991. They have 9 children, all of whom were young children in 1991 and they took up the whole pew. Now all the children are married with children and there are also 3 great grand children. I think there are 32 grandchildren. To my right is a panoramic picture window with the Atlantic lapping at the backyard.
