Donna Hartshorn and Lois Bragan, both Eucharistic ministers at St. Pius V Church in Lynn, officiated and doled out Communion wafers.

And a cold wind whipped the banner hanging from above the entrance, announcing the church’s 100th anniversary, 1906-2006.

“This was my church,” said Debbie Smalley of Lynn, who attended the ceremony with her children, Jeremy, 10, and Rebecca, 6.

I've found five mistakes in the above quote from the story.

I'm sorry, but I can't blame the parishioners. They're sheep minus a shepherd. Cardinal O'Malley?

(Thanks to Dom for the story.)
