5 Things: Cardinal O'Malley in Medford, Council Meeting Changed

Here's Five Things.

Good morning, here are five things to know today:

1. City Council: The council will hold its regular 7 p.m. meeting tonight at city hall, but a subcommittee meeting scheduled for tomorrow has been changed. The council's subcommittee on licensing was going to have a 5:30 p.m. meeting Wednesday to take public input on a proposed change to the city's restaurant liquor licensing ordinance, but that meeting has been postponed. The licensing subcommittee still plans to meet tomorrow, but will instead discuss a proposed pilot program for food cart licensing.

2. Rain: It's expected to rain today, mainly in the morning, according to the National Weather Service. As much as a half inch of rain fall could come down, with highs in the low 50s.

Cardinal Sean O'Malley, archbishop of Boston, performed mass at Sunday to celebrate the parish's 100th anniversary. "One hundred years ago, it wasn't easy to be a Catholic here in Massachusetts. Some people say it's not easy today," O'Malley said in his homily to nearly packed pews. "As we celebrate these 100 years, we do so with great gratitude," he said. Saint Clement Parish was founded in April of 1912 in an era when Catholics were moving out of ethnic enclaves in Boston and into outlying communities like Somerville and Medford, according to a history of the parish distributed Sunday.
