A short trip back in time this week for Throwback Thursday: More than 150 people gahered at St. Xavier High School (Cincinnati) in January for the Notre Dame Club of Cincinnati’s annual Family Mass and Brunch. Bishop Joe Binzer celebrated Mass for the group, which presented Tom McKiernan with its annual Exemplar Award for almost 40 years of service to Seton High School as a teacher and principal and, since his retirement, service to the Holy Land with the Order of the Holy Sepulchre. Mr. McKiernan has made more than 20 trips to the Middle East and more than 30 to Rome to report on the Order’s projects in the Holy Land, which include schools, churches and humanitarian aid.
