Page6 POST-GAZEI-rE, JULY 3, 2015 Blessed ,pero Serra by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Miguel Jose Serra was born on the island of Majorca on November 24, 1713. He entered the Franciscan Or- der at which time he took the name Junipero. Or- dained in 1737, he taught philosophy and theology at the University of Padua until 1749. On January 1, 1751, at the age of thirtyTseven, he landed in Mexico City and spent the rest of his life working for the conversion of the peoples of the New World. In 1768, Father Serra was head of a group of Franciscans tasked with evangelizing California, then part of New Spain. He established his first mission at San Diego in 1769. He would go on to help found another eight missions up the coast through the San Francisco Bay Area that would eventually grow to 21 missions all together. In 1769, he established his headquarters near the Presidio {Garrison) of Monterey, but soon moved a fe~ miles south to establish MiSsion San Carlos Bo~rromeo de Carmelo in today's Carmel, California. A tireless worker, Serra was in large part responsible for the foundation and spread of the Church on the West Coast of the United States when it was still mis- sion territory. Father Serra passed away on August 28, 1784 at the age of 70 near Monterey. He was beatified by Pope John Paul I[ on September 25, 1988. Pope Francis plans to canonize him at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on September 23, during his visit to the United States. A statue of Father Serra stands in the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol.

It was the "Celebration of Summer," as in the Donna Summer Memorial Roller Disco Party. The event also featured Boston natives DJ Kon of Dorchester, Elisa Hamilton, cre- ator of Dance Spot Boston, Frieda Fries of Jacques' Cabaret and the Boston Derby Dames roller derby team. It all happened Friday night, June 19~ at City Hall Plaza. It is sad that Donna Summer passed away so young a couple of years ago. Thankfully, I saw her last and probably best performance in years down at the Pavilion on Seaport Boulevard under the tent on a warm, soon-to-be hot summer night. It brought back great memories of the Disco era when I was dubbed "Disco Sal" by friends and when roller disco showed up, I was a regular at Spinoffs on Landsdowne Street every weekend on the dance floor. by Sal Giarratani I enjoyed catching up with my past at City Hall Plaza remembering the Disco Queen. Disco didn't last long but it lasted long enough. It seemed to die out with roller disco. But when it was hot, it was really hot. The music was loud and familiar as I entered City Hall Plaza. The band was play- ing old favorites from the '70s and many folks showed up as if they were extras on CHIPS or Saturday Night Fever. Bellbottoms, the hairdos, the skirts, the elevator shoes and the overall look. Thank you Mayor Walsh for all those memories at the Donna Summer Tribute. It felt like 1979 all over again. My hair was jet black, my polyester suit was smokin' gray, my shoes had Cuban heels, my shirt was flaming red, and my tie, of course, solid white. I had the look. I was Sal Travolta all over again. Disco, whether in Cuban heels or on skates, was always about the cool moves and the look. I had both, but sometimes not always together as when I broke my left wrist disco-ing off the dance floor at Spinoffs. I will be back next year as will many others I talked with at this most recent trib- ute night to Donna Summer. There were lots of great outfits and lots of dancing and lines to rent skates for the party., I bumped into a local actor named Karl Carlo Green from Lowell, who is~a movie extra, and I had to take his photo because he had the look down pat. I should have asked him if he ever disco-ed over at Polyester's Northern Avenue before the Sea- port days. I could see him there doing his thing. Each year, Disco moves further back in history, but those who loved that era, it will never die. Old disco dances never die, they just disco away.
