The Day of Father George's Last Mass at St .Brigid's
We recollect that this picture , taken several years ago , was taken at a time when St. Brigids parish and the East Village were both a good bit more radical and were regularly embroiled in political turmoil . So it was that Father George was considered by some a bit too radical and political . We also recollect that he was being allowed to move to another parish in Central America by a conservative New York Archdiocese .
In this picture Father George and Father Pat ( in black ) are in Tompkins Square Park gathered with some of the neighborhoods more politically activist individuals on the Sunday on which he had celebrated his last Mass with his parishioners at St Brigid's Church .
