Day of jubilee

Thirty-five Jubilarians celebrating 25, 40, 50, 60 and 65 (!) years respectively of priesthood and membership in Maryknoll gather in Queen of Apostles Chapel with family and friends.

Fr. Ed Dougherty, superior general, gave a quick overview on how much America has changed over these years: a gallon of gas was 15 cents and a postage stamp was three cents 65 years ago. (He neglected to add that I was minus one year old.)

With the new configuration of the chapel, the Jubilarians sat in the front row of the main aisle, with their personal guests directly behind them.

Sister Jubilarians, and the Maryknoll Sisters' and Lay Missioner Leadership were honored guests.
