Ready for a blast Three longtime city priests will retire July 1 City's Catholic churches to share leaders WOONSOCKET – Three city reverends with more than a half of a century of combined experience in Woonsocket's Catholic churches will be retiring next month, and due to the rapidly declining number of priests in the state, the Diocese of Providence has announced that two of their parishes will be sharing leaders with other city churches. On July 1, Rev. Gerald Finnegan will retire from his post at St. Charles Borromeo, and Rev. Dennis Reardon will become the new pas- tor there, while maintaining his duties at nearby All Saints Parish. It is the same day that the retire- ment of Rev.
