Families, friends, church members, and others attended yesterday’s final mass to bid farewell to Bishop Quinn who retired two months ago after serving more than two decades as the leader of the Catholic Diocese of Samoa Pago Pago.
As part of the service, the Fono presented the outgoing Bishop with a Concurrent Resolution commending him for his service to the church, the youth and the people of American Samoa.
