A Golden Jubilee
Father William “Bill” Petrie celebrated 50 years of commitment to the Catholic church on Sunday at St. Damien of Molokai Church in Kaunakakai. Petrie, who moved to Molokai in July of this year, had previously worked with Mother Teresa of Calcutta, serving “the poorest of the poor” for 25 years. He is happy to call Molokai home now, saying at his celebration, “Mother Teresa did something in heaven and I got here.”
