Saint Benedict’s Catholic Church celebrated the farewell mass of Rev. Stephen Norton on June 26. Norton is leaving the church to work on his doctorate in ministry preaching. Many attended the mass to show love and support for Norton. Some churchgoers spoke of all that the priest has done for them. Even when service was completed, many stopped Norton to thank and hug him, and bless him with gifts. For many, Norton was a beacon of light to the community.
