Mass Officiant - Fr. Bill Devine - After serving in parishes in Foxboro, Reading, Quincy and Dorchester, Fr. Devine was commissioned an officer in the U.S. Navy Chaplain Corps serving with the Navy and Marine Corps for 23 years. During this time he served as a chaplain at the U.S. Naval Academy, three combat tours in Iraq, ten sea service deployments aboard Navy ships and a number of overseas tours in Asia. Upon his retirement from the Navy in 2011 he served at St. John’s Church, Beverly for six months and was then assigned by Cardinal Sean O’Malley to be pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Parish, the same parish he grew up in. As pastor, he assumes the responsibility of leading and serving God’s people in the parish as well as students at Bridgewater State University and the inmates at the Bridgewater Correctional Complex.
Special tribute to our dear friend Jay Miller - Jay graduated from Weymouth South High School, Class of 1988. He later attended Boston College before enlisting in the United States Air Force, where he proudly served his country. Jay received several awards for his dedication and service to the City of Brockton where he was the former Executive Director for the Brockton Boys and Girls Club, worked for the YMCA and most recently was the Operations Director for Brockton Cable Access TV. Jay dominated life to the fullest and will be remembered for his positive energy, contagious laugh and smile that light up a room.

The Brockton Firefighters Relief Association invites all to join us in Father Kenney Hall following the mass (approximately noon) for fun and fare as we break bread in true Irish fashion with a true Irish meal of Corned Beef and Cabbage.
Our mission is to honor past and present members of the fire service along with all the men and women of our country's armed services. Through our music we intend to bring dignity to funeral services , parades and memorial services wherever and whenever it is warranted. Following the deepest of traditions we will hold our heads high and our hearts strong for all those who are in a time of need.
The Brockton Firefighters Pipes & Drums proudly wear the Maclachlan Tartan.
Clan Maclachlan claims descent from Lachlan Mor, who lived on the shores of Loch Fyne in the 13th century. Lachlan belonged to the family who originally emigrated from Ireland to Scotland in the 11th century. This taran is worn with respect and admiration to the current chief of the Clan Euan John Maclachlan.
