A schoolwide Mass that was part of Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child's annual celebration of Advent saw a historic first for the school when the Mass was celebrated by His Eminence, Joseph W. Cardinal Tobin, archbishop of Newark, marking the first time a cardinal said Mass at Oak Knoll.
At the end of the Mass, Oak Knoll Head of School Timothy J. Saburn presented Cardinal Tobin with a gift, including a donation in his name to the Casa Cornelia Law Center, a San Diego-based organization that provides free legal services to victims of human and civil rights violations. The Casa Cornelia Law Center, Saburn noted, was founded by Holy Child Sister Ann M. Durst, a former prefect of Oak Knoll School.
After the Mass, Tobin enjoyed lunch with Oak Knoll faculty, staff, administrators and students.
