With Mary at the Foot of the Cross for 50 Years

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.
