Catholics celebrate liberty at Mass in Forsyth Park, Savannah
More than 1,500 Catholics from all over south Georgia came together as church in Savannah’s Forsyth Park for a Mass celebrating religious liberty in the USA.
Many of those in attendance began their day early to find a nearby parking spot and place to sit. One couple, Randy Yon and his wife Joy, left Waycross at 5:30 am to attend the Mass. Yon heard about the Mass about a month ago and made plans to attend. He said about 12 to 15 fellow parishioners travelled from St. Joseph Church for the Faith and Freedom Mass.
“It was an historic Mass,” said Yon. “The music was fantastic and it was important to hold the Mass in public so non-Catholics could witness how we celebrate our faith,” he said.
