St. Marguerite’s remembers man of peace

Tooele’s Catholic community reminisced about the life of Pope John Paul II during Mass at St. Marguerite’s shortly after his death Saturday. The parish is led by Father Matthew Wixted who met privately with the pope following a 1992 Easter Mass at the Vatican. Musicians (bottom, left) played guitars and sang during the service. Later in the service (bottom right), Father Wixted asked, “Where are my special ones?” He then blessed the children, who gathered around him. At the end of the service, the St. Marguerite’s altar boys (center right) carried out the crucifix, bringing an end to the Mass.
