Paulist Fr. Stuart Wilson-Smith’s “First Mass”

August 24, 2017

On Sunday afternoon, May 21, Paulist Fr. Stuart Wilson-Smith celebrated his Mass of Thanksgiving or “First Mass” at our mother church, the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York City.  He had been ordained a priest the previous day.

This new video provides highlights from that special liturgy, including part of the homily offered by Paulist Fr. Tom Gibbons, associate pastor of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Community in Los Angeles:
