More Snapshots from Savour Wine and Cheese Grand Opening

See yesterday’s GMG post for the full story

GMG’s Father Green, a happy customer! Doesn’t he look Parisian, with beret, camera, and wine in hand?

Last night was the grand opening of Savour Wine and Cheese at their new location, 76 Prospect Street (the old Connors drugstore). A wonderful array of wine and beer was served; the wine was dispensed from state of the art “buy before you try” machines, and the appetizers and select cheeses, beyond divine.

Some of the talented people who made last night’s opening a great success

Happy Birthday 40th Father Green!


Fred Bodin writes-

Father Matthew confessed at my gallery opening tonight that tomorrow he will reach the "Big 40." He looks so much younger, but I guess I’ll believe him. Matthew Green was born in Winchester (MA) Hospital on October 7th, 1972. He told me that his time in Gloucester, which has been less than two years, has been hugely enhanced by his connection with Good Morning Gloucester. GMG quickly put him in touch with the local community and the larger community beyond. We know him through his photographs and his words, and they’re all good. If you’ve met Fr. Matthew at Mug Ups, art openings, or other local events, you know how personable and approachable he is. When I took this photo, I asked him to hold up four fingers to signify age his of four decades. Now I think it should be for the next forty years he stays in Gloucester. This priest has blessed us all with his presence.


I Wonder as I Wander

I Wonder as I Wander (Appalachia) ~ Words and Music collected by John Niles, 1933

I wonder as I wander out under the sky,
How Jesus the Savior did come for to die.
For poor on’ry people like you and like I…
I wonder as I wander out under the sky.

When Mary birthed Jesus ’twas in a cow’s stall,
With wise men and farmers and shepherds and all.
But high from God’s heaven a star’s light did fall,
And the promise of ages it then did recall.

If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing,
A star in the sky, or a bird on the wing,
Or all of God’s angels in heav’n for to sing,
He surely could have it, ’cause he was the King.

Many thanks to Father Green for posting his photo of the St. Ann’s Nativity. I was looking for an image to go with this hauntingly beautiful Christmas carol and was inspired to go see the nativity after seeing his photo posted yesterday.
