16  Fairfax News / Current News & Events / Re: Nice Front Page Article On Old St. Lukes/Steeple Market In Sat's Issue on: February 09, 2009, 11:07:01 AM
A friend e-mailed me that the article was in there, but I didn't get the message til today.  Can't seem to find it on Messenger site.  So if anyone has a copy they could share or finds the link I'd appreciate it.  Thanks.
17  Fairfax News / Current News & Events / Re: Do You Have Remembrances Of St. Luke's & Post St. Lukes on: January 05, 2009, 03:28:16 PM
I have many fond memories of St. Luke's church located in what was most recently Steeple market.  As Mike has already pointed out Phil and I were married there in June of 1979 (we became Phil & Dawn not to be confused with the famous Phil & Don Everly) roughly where the meat counter was located.  Father Morgan performed the ceremony. A fact that at first appalled me, but as the years have gone by I find rather amusing.  While this is obviously the top memory, it is not the only one.  My family attended services there every week when we moved to Fairfax in May of my first grade year.  Over the years I made many friends in the parish.  Singing with Mary Jo Gillilan (then Pigeon) and her family who despite their superior musical abilities espoused the idea that any voice raised in hymn was a blessed voice.  I'm here to tell you that was a very generous interpretation of my vocal abilities!   Sometimes I confess there was a bit of teenage talking and lack of attention to the service since we were out of view in the balcony.  Some of those Westford kids might remember the balcony, you know who you are.  Most of the Westford kids my age did not attend BFA, but did attend St. Luke's for mass and religion class.  We got to meet another large group of our peers this way.  Several priests served St. Luke's, Frs. Hickey, Nugent and the aforementioned Fr. Morgan.  By far our favorite priest growing up with Fr. Giroux.  He really enjoyed the company of young people and was quite colorful as priests go.  There were definitely people who were not happy when we had to move our church.  As I recall it was the large amount of funding required to correct the structure and the diocese would not approve such an undertaking.  Others may remember more details than I do, it was a long time ago.  I'm sad to see my childhood church, the church where I launched my married life, gone.  Thankfully, no one was hurt and the memories can't be extinguished.

We have found an address for Joe based on the same obit you found Dave (glad you're now able to make it). In fact, we do believe we have found a contact for everyone or have people working on leads that should yield an address. Coming soon more details on the event.  Thanks for your help everyone!

We are trying to reach alumni from the class of 1978.  If you have any contact info on the following folks, it would be of great help.  Robin Deschamp, Marie Hathaway and Joseph Lazzaro.  Any alumni with updated contact info should feel free to respond and I'll plug you into the list.  Thanks.
