Monsignor Thomas R. Bevan, center, pastor at the Church of St. Patrick, Cumberland, and Vicar Forane for Allegany and Garrett counties, greets Dr. Troy Foland, right, members of the veterinarian's family and other parishioners Sunday during a reception held in his honor on the 45th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood. The surprise celebration was held in the courtyard following Mass, during which parish leader Ed Berry expressed appreciation for Bevan's 11 years of "vision and leadership." A large number of improvements have been made at St. Patrick with the monsignor at the helm, including many upgrades to the community center and other buildings on the campus of the parish, which was founded in 1790.
