Orchard Park priest still celebrates mass everyday at the age of 99

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) - An Orchard Park priest is proving that age is just a number. 

Father Brady reached the age of 99 last month but continues to celebrate mass even though most people his age have long since retired.

Ordained in Buffalo in 1943, Brady now conducts mass in a chapel prepared for him at his independent living community, Brookdale Orchard Glen. 

He decided on this path at an early age when a priest asked his third-grade class who would want to enter the priesthood. 

His humor and commitment play factors in what keeps him going.
