The Lamp Post


A new face and a new look: People who attend All Saints Church breathed a sigh of relief (as did their pastor) when the archdiocese sent a new priest to the parish. The Rev. Andreas Davison has arrived to take some of the pressure off Pastor the Rev. Tim Kearney. The interior OF the church also got a bit of a new look recently, as hard wood floors were refinished. It was a slight nuisance for some members, who had to change their habits and sit in different seats than normal during Masses as the refinished surfaced dried, bit it was worth it, they said.

Small business on big screen: A documentary film about Haverhill’s Comic Book Palace was accepted as an entry into this years Mass Indie Film Festival. The festival is Aug. 14 at the Somerville Theatre and Aug. 16 and 17 at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge. The film, by local film maker Felipe “Phil” Jorge of Haverhill focuses on daily happenings inside Glenn O’Leary’s comic book shop. Jorge recently held a premier showing of his film at the AMC Lowe’s theater in Methuen and plans to show it again on July 21 at 6:30 p.m. at Chunky’s Cinema in Haverhill. O’Leary is selling tickets for $7 each at the Comic Book Palace, 620 Primrose St. Tickets will also be available at Chunky’s on the night of the showing.
