Monday, March 2, 2020 – La Salle Academy welcomed Bishop Edmund Whalen to celebrate Mass with the entire student body in the school gymnasium on 6th Street. Also presiding over the Mass was Father Gregory Chisholm, Pastor of the Parish of St. Charles Borromeo in Harlem.
Bishop Whalen, vicar for clergy of the Archdiocese of New York, greeted students with genuine excitement before beginning Mass. During the Homily, he reminded students to talk to God “man-to-man” during prayer.
Earlier in the morning, Bishop Whalen spent time with the freshmen to teach them about what it means to be a bishop and the significance of his garments. La Salle Academy is grateful for Bishop Whalen and Father Gregory’s time during this Lenten season. Click here for more photos from Bishop Whalen’s visit to La Salle Academy.
