Mary Queen of Heaven Parish Bids Fond Farewell to Father Tony Taschetta

Father Tony Taschetta, pastor at Mary Queen of Heaven Parish in Elmhurst, celebrated Masses during the weekend of June 7-8 during which he said goodbye to parishioners and talked about the memories of being a priest for 45 years as he prepares for a life of retirement. He plans to move to California to live the life of a hermit at a hermitage in Big Sur.
