Protect Life: Fire Prevention Week

Father Daniel Mahoney, Charlestown, MA
CatholicTV's daily Mass was celebrated today by Father Daniel Mahoney, of  Charlestown, MA.

We were also blessed to have retired firefighter, Chief John Ellis from Boston's District 11, as the Lector at Mass in honor of Fire Prevention Week. You can view today's Mass and listen to Fr. Mahoney's homily about firefighters here: www.CatholicTV.com/Catholic-Mass-1012.aspx

John Ellis- Retired Chief, District 11
Father Mahoney was ordained a Priest in 1956. He was assigned to St. Francis de Sales Parish in Charlestown in 1968 and has served as pastor since 1978. In 1964, Father Mahoney began his association with the Boston Fire Department as Assistant Chaplain and became its Chief Chaplain in 1991. In these roles, Father Mahoney has responded to hundreds of incidents and offered comfort to all firefighters and their families.

The National Fire Prevention Association celebrates Fire Prevention Week from October 9-15, 2011. Fire Prevention Week focuses on preventing home fires and protecting families in the community with life-saving technologies and planning. 

As we continue to celebrate Pro Life month, we are truly grateful for the men and women who put themselves in harm's way out of concern for all human life. They truly proclaim a Gospel of Life and are a light to the world. We can all show our appreciation and concern for them by taking preventive measures in our homes.
