Fr. David Barnes is 35 years old, and the youngest pastor in the Archdiocese of Boston. He's also taken his parish out of a $748K debt (Red Sox cap tip to Gerald) parish collections have increased by 50%, the church underwent a $300K renovation while keeping the sacred space sacred, and the parish also has a music program that doesn't mess around. They have a well-educated music director, they use Worship III, and use actual hymns, not hootenanny music. The music lists are in the bulletins at the parish website.

The younger priests are comin' in, and they know their stuff. I can safely include my own boss, Jason's new boss, and Fr. Barnes, amongst those younger priests. Keep up the great work!
