Last week we had a glorious celebration of our Sr. Mary Dolores’ Golden Jubilee of Passionist Consecration. Her sister Betsy and favorite brother-in-law Chuck flew in from Dallas while a small group of cousins from the area and a few friends gathered on the morning of the Feast of St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows to celebrate this wonderful occasion.
The happy Jubilarian!
Our Passionist Fr. John Schork from Sacred Heart Monastery
in Louisville, KY proclaimed the Gospel.
