The Costello Family was one of the founding families of the parish at Petersville.  
The group came from Canada included the Burnett, Gleeson, Hanrahan, Kelly, McGinn, 
O'Meara, Monaghan, Quigley, Spain, Tierney and Waters families.  These families 
all helped start the parish and many of these families have married into the

We are asking family members to bring two dishes to share (if not traveling too far) 
table service, lawn chairs, as well as pictures and memories.  A program is planned 
for after the meal.
