The Essex Catholic Community had a successful “Serve Our Neighbor Day” Oct. 29. Under the direction of John McMahon, the faith formation director, and with the help of his teams, more than 20 lawn and house clean-up projects were completely by more than 80 volunteers.  Wearing blue T-shirts to identifying themselves as a part of this parish project, they went out to help others in need in the name of Jesus. The day began with prayer and ended with a festive barbeque.
