Did you know that St. Jerome Parish was established in 1941? Monsignor James Rohan was the founding pastor (1941-1973). He succeeded in building a mission-style church. A school and convent were added in 1955.
Teens gathered yesterday at St Jerome’s Rohan Hall to celebrate Christmas while preparing toiletry bags to give to the teens and young adults at the GRIP Shelter in Richmond. After “bagging” the gifts there was time for some games. Many of the photos are of the smaller groups who had to “sing out” the tune of the song that they drew from Carol’s “hat”.
It was a fun evening at the Annual Dinner Dance featuring The Don Krieger Big Band. It was a wonderful dinner….salad, roasted pork, mashed potatoes, French-style green beans and dessert of vanilla ice cream and cookies.
Many thanks to the volunteer organizers.
You can see the full photo album at St Jerome Catholic Church FB page…..sorry the album won’t link this morning.
Palm Sunday…Father Fernando’s homily today invites us to take time to join the community of faith at each event this week: Holy Thursday Evening Mass at 7:30 pm; Good Friday Liturgy at Noon or 7:30 pm; Holy Saturday Easter Vigil Mass at 8pm; and Easter Sunday at 7:30, 9 or 11am. The Pascal Triduum celebrates all of the elements of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus.
Rohan Hall was full last evening…..it was an evening of a great crab feed and community. I personally had an injured thumb wrapped in plastic for the occasion so that I did not miss out on any crab. Those “tools” that my friend Ursula brought were perfect!
Enjoy the photos! Stay tuned….the link does not want to link….will try later
