St. Katharine Drexel 25th Anniversary

What a perfectly perfect day!!  In spite of the rain, more than 130 folks attended the 25th anniversary of St. Katharine Drexel Region! It truly was a family reunion. The Mass, celebrated by Father John Frambes, OFM, was beautiful. The church itself was filled….filled!!….  The choir sounded great with Brother Kip providing phenomenal harmony.  In an effort to be inclusive, the petitions were read in both English and Spanish which was comforting to all.

Back to the Hall and let the fun begin! The potluck dishes provided such a grand variety of food with something to entice everyone.  There were a Franciscan nun and Friar with their faces cut out providing a picture opportunity and a few laughs.  Justin Carisio, OFS, gave a very informative presentation on St. Katharine Drexel.  So many folks were heard saying they learned lots of new info about our patron.  Thanks, Justin!

The gift bag that everyone received had a logo that Justin’s son, Sebastian created for us commemorating the anniversary.  The bag itself contained a coloring book with a page for each fraternity and a box of crayons, some mints that were made with water from the shrine at Our Lady of Lourdes, a pen, bookmark created for the occasion and prayer card of Mother Katharine Drexel.

Everyone left well fed and happy! What more can we ask!? May the next 25 years bring us as much joy as the anniversary party did!!
