It was a day of celebration at St. Theresa Catholic Church Thursday as eighth-graders from around the borough gathered for Mass led by Timothy Cardinal Dolan.
The Mass drew students from 20 Catholic schools. Cardinal Dolan praised the students’ accomplishments and dedication to the church.
Students took turns reading scripture as the church marks the Feast of the Ascension – the day Catholics celebrate Jesus' ascension into heaven.
