To Celebrate St. Mary’s 150th

Under smiling skies, the congregation of St. Mary’s “Our Lady of the Lake” Catholic Church in Cooperstown marked the parish’s 150th anniversary today with a commemorative mass on the lawn of the Elm Street church and social gathering to follow. In top photo, the Rev. John P. Rosson, pastor, surrounded by the current confirmation class, blesses the offerings. Lower left, state Sen.
