CLARKS GREEN — Fr. Rich Cirba led a long line of little saints, dressed as everything from movie characters, to food items, to various animals, in a Halloween costume parade following mass on Friday, Oct. 30 at the Church of Saint Gregory. Starting in the church parking lot, the children followed the pastor to the school grounds at Our Lady of Peace, walking, skipping and laughing with their friends.
