Hundreds of visitors, including YCHS students and their families, Board members, and friends of the school gathered on campus for a potluck dinner and Mass of Thanksgiving for Father Corcoran. Corcoran, the founding Principal and Director of YCHS, is completing five years of service at the school. He will leave this summer to begin a new assignment in the U.S.
In his homily at Mass, Father Mulreany (who arrived five years ago with Corcoran) compared how the disciples may have felt when they realized Jesus would be leaving them and how many at YCHS may feel about Corcoran's departure. "No one should be worried," Mulreany reassured the congregation. "Jesus told the disciples that the Father would send the Holy Spirit to remind them of all He taught them. The Holy Spirit, which gave birth to this school, will continue to remind us of all that Father Corcoran has taught us." Mulreany then mentioned three of the important lessons Corcoran brought to YCHS: 1. Be at school and on time every day. 2. Be a reader. 3. Do what's right, not what's easy. Mulreany finished by thanking Corcoran "for bringing out the best in all of us."
During his remarks after Mass, Corcoran thanked all those who have helped make YCHS a success. To view pictures of ther Mass and dinner, click on the Photo Gallery link above.
