The Mercer County Federation of Holy Name Societies will hold its 55th annual Msgr. Richard T. Crean Memorial Mass and Scholarship Awards Breakfast March 18 in St. Raphael Church, 3500 South Broad St., Hamilton.

The Mass will be celebrated at 7:30 p.m. The breakfast will follow in the parish center.

Since 1956, the federation has kept the memory of Msgr. Crean’s pastoral work alive through its sponsorship of the annual memorial Mass and breakfast. Proceeds from the breakfast assist in the financing of scholarships to Catholic high school students who continue to pursue a higher education. Msgr.
