Father Gary on "Irish" and St. Mary's

Posted by MJ

Very interesting interview with Fr. Gary in the LUSJ on the topics of his Irish heritage and on St. Patrick.

The Rev. Gary Kibler, the pastor of St. Mary’s Church, knows a bit about the patron saint of Ireland and St. Patrick’s Feast Day which is Tuesday. Kibler’s mother is Irish, his grandparents came from Ireland and he’s traveled the old sod.
I had the honor of meeting Fr. Gary about a month ago in my long quest to photograph Lockport's churches. I chose St. Mary's first since they were (and are still) appealing the closure instituted by the Buffalo Diocese. Older post is located here. Father Gary is one of the nicest and most welcoming people I've ever met. If you ever get a chance to stop in, check out the church and say hi, be sure to do so. You will not be disappointed.

Some images from our visit:
