Conference room dedicated to Bishop John M. D’Arcy at St. John’s Seminary

The Bishop John M. D’Arcy Conference Room at Our Lady of the Presentation Lecture Hall in Brighton, Mass. Bishop D’Arcy grew up in this church, received all his sacraments and said his first Mass there. The church is now part of St. John’s Seminary.

August 18, 2015 marked the day that Bishop John M. D’Arcy would have been 83 years old. On that day, nearly 200 of his friends, family members and former parishioners gathered at the Our Lady of Presentation Lecture Hall for a dedication of the new St. John’s Seminary conference room in his name. Msgr. Morony, rector at St. John’s said, “It is fitting that we should dedicate a room to Bishop D’Arcy at St. John’s Seminary, where he taught — in the church where he said his first Mass.”  Photos provided by Joan D’Arcy Sheridan
