Closing our Jubilee Year
On Friday, August 23 we brought our Jubilee year of celebration to a close with a Mass and reception at our neighboring parish, St. Regis. This has been a wonderful year commemorating the Little Sisters’ arrival in the United States 150 years ago, and the night of celebration was a special one.
We are grateful for the use of the church and parish hall, for Bishop Johnston coming and celebrating Mass, and for all of our friends and supporters who came and shared the evening with us.
Mass was lovely, and the reception was a lot of fun with great music and food, and the highlight of the evening – the drawing for the winners of the cash raffle. Speaking of winners, here they are:
$5,000 – Bob and Grace Kolenda
$3,000 – Daniel and Mary Tira
