A party to celebrate Father Coyne prompts announcement of fund to renovate St. Margaret’s

BACK BAY — 50 guests turned out for a surprise party for Father Ron Coyne who is celebrating his 50th anniversary as a priest. The celebration dinner, held at Grill 23 in the Back Bay, was organized by Greg and Terry Clark. Originally from Dorchester, the Clarks announced that there will be a renovation of St. Margaret’s Church, Clark’s home parish, which is where Father Coyne served early in his time as a priest. Greg Clark, who announced an initial donation of $200,000, is leading a group of people to support the work to be done on the church building.
