We're going to be HOW OLD?!
While it doesn’t seem possible, St. Jerome Parish is rapidly approaching it’s 100th birthday. Planning has begun for the Centennial celebration which is tentatively scheduled to begin with the annual St. Jerome Clam/Steak Bake which is held the last Sunday of September and in 2018 happens to fall on September 30th, the feast day of our patron, St. Jerome. Activities are being planned for a full year culminating with the Clam/Steak Bake in September of 2019.
We need your help to spread the word and to connect or reconnect with alumni, former parishioners, neighbors and friends. We have started a quarterly newsletter to keep people informed of current happenings and upcoming events, including the centennial activities. If you would like to get this information visit our website www.stjeromecleveland.org and sign up, or call the church office and we’ll mail you a copy!
We will be collecting memorabilia, and just as important, we want to collect and preserve memories. Do you have a favorite story or memory from back in the day? A favorite teacher or priest? We would love to hear it. We would like to preserve these either in writing or on video. Watch here in the Observer and on our website for opportunities to record your story! Be a part of history!
