Father James Cahill blows out the candles on his birthday cake at the celebration for his 90th birthday. He’s assisted by Patti Schandevel (front) and Anne Weatherford. Friends and former parishioners of Rev. Cahill threw a birthday celebration for the priest, who turned 90 in September. The event, held at the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church parish hall in Waynesville, was attended by about 150 well-wishers from parishes all around Western North Carolina. Cahill was ordained in 1961 by Cardinal Richard Cushing in Massachusetts and came to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Charlotte in 1986. He was appointed pastor at St. Mary’s in Sylva in 1991 and served on the diocesan vocations board.
