My How Time Flies!

Beloved former St. Jerome Pastor, Francis Walsh, shown here in 1979 preparing to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of St. Jerome Parish observed his own 60th anniversary in May, the anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.

Back in 1979 when then Pastor Francis P. Walsh celebrated the 60th Anniversary of St. Jerome Church he never imagined he would be back here again for the 60th Anniversary of his Ordination to the priesthood which was May 18, 2017.  As Father Walsh noted, “I never thought I would live long enough to have a 60th Anniversary.”  We are very glad he did and hope to celebrate many more anniversaries with him!  We will gather after 10am Mass on Sunday, June 25th for cake and coffee to celebrate his many years of service and friendship for the people of St. Jerome.
