Feast of St. Michael the Archangel in Melrose

Written by 

As every year September is a mont of St Michael the Archangel in Melrose as we celebrate the Feast of our Patron. This year we have invited our friends and parishioners for September 14th to join us in thanksgiving for our Protector on Earth. 

It is alway a great occasion to learn something new. This time we have invited Fr. Frank Kelly, SDB, from the Salesian Family we are part of. He was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. After ordination in 1971, Fr. Kelly was among the first DRAs at Salesian High School, New Rochelle, N.Y., and Don Bosco Prep, Ramsey, N.J. Fr. Frank was assistant pastor at St. Anthony Parish in Elizabeth. He served on the Marian Shrine retreat team. He was director of Salesian Junior Seminary in Goshen, N.Y., from 1983-1986. In 1986, Fr. Kelly brought his deep spirituality and hearty laugh to the Salesian community in Etobicoke, Ont. While in the Toronto area, Fr. Frank has served as director of the Salesian community and pastor of St. Benedict Parish. From 2000 to 2006, Fr. Kelly was vice provincial for the Canadian vice province. At present, Fr. Kelly lives with the Salesian community in Etobicoke, where he serves as a priest and spiritual guide.
