If there is one thing Father Michael Palmer will always remember about his 50 years as a Roman Catholic priest, it will be his opportunity to share in countless personal religious celebrations he oversaw for his parish.
“I’ll always remember the family celebrations at church, and the sacraments — like First Communions and baptisms,” he said. “They all involve the grand learning of faith in our Lord as the sacraments advance. It continues on through confirmation, as we help pass along the faith to the next generation. At each step, I’ve seen happy and rewarded young men and women.”
