Fr. Frances "Jerry" Scanlan celebrated his 59th year as a priest this May. His sister Peg Olson joined him as he celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving in the rectory chapel. Congratulations Fr. Jerry!
Our pastor, Fr. Joe Noonan, celebrated his Silver Jubilee - 25 years as a priest on May 20. We couldn't let this occasion pass without some kind of fanfare, so the staff organized a surprise Anniversary Parade for Fr. Joe. Around 136 cars were counted lining 155th Street and Long Avenue waiting to drive by and show their love and support for our wonderful pastor.
