Bishop Richard Malone celebrated Mass with the children of Northern Chautauqua Catholic School recently. Several area priests concelebrated with the Bishop: Fr. Charles Zadora, Fr. Matt Nycz, Fr. Walter Werbicki, Fr. Dennis Riter and Fr. Joseph Zalacca, canonical administrator of NCCS. The children of the school participated in several ways. The Liturgy of the Word was proclaimed by Madeline Gokey while Eric Baumgartner read the petitions. Altars servers included Bryan Dempsey, Monica Pokoj and Michael Filice. Hannah Gullo and Grace Pucciarelli assisted the Bishop as mace and crosier bearers. Bishop Malone involved the children in his homily focusing on the three types of prayer. He encouraged everyone to use the time of Lent to grow in their prayer life. The singing at Mass was enhanced by the music ministry of Andrea and Tom Gestwicki, David Bolen and the Select Chorus of NCCS directed by Rebecca Cicelski.
