St. Martin of Tours Pastor Still Hard at Work
It was just last spring that Father John C. Flynn collapsed during a friendly game of golf and had to have a pacemaker put in his heart—an operation that, after complications, landed him in St. Barnabas Hospital for several days. But that bout with illness hasn’t kept the 81-year-old priest from his post at St. Martin of Tours Parish, where he’s been the pastor for over 20 years.

Alice Stafford Otis, 92, first started working at St. Barnabas Hospital in 1969, and has been a volunteer there for the past 15 years.
