Fr. Joe Celebrates 40 6/17/2024

Fr. Joe celebrates 40 years as a priest. Friends parishioners, and Servite Brothers help!

The celebration began with a Mass at 12:15

Fr. Joe uses personal anecdotes to enhance the points in his homilies.

Parishioners offer personal greetings after Mass.

Many line up to enscribe greetings and wishes in "the book" in the church hall.
Servers from Gene & Georgetti's scurry to assure that no one is empty handed.
Fr. Joe watches a succession of video messages from priests who have known him for many years but could not be here.

It was a multi-generation family event, like so many at Assumption.

A team worked hard for planning and execution!

Beth Schuman presents Fr. Joe's gift on behalf of the appreciative crowd. It will support his love of travel, or however he feels.
