On February 24, 2019 Region VI Alhambrans celebrated Founders Day Mass with a Plaque Dedication to St Joseph Catholic Church in Erie Michigan. St Joseph Church is celebrating 200 years as a parish.
Our 35+ members arrived at the church for the 10:30 AM mass to find the power was off due to weather conditions. Ok not a problem for this parish. Candles were lit and the mass proceeded on. Rev Fr Mark Prill made light of it by saying we will celebrate mass as they did back in 1876, with candles. How fitting?
Supreme Chaplain Fr Paul Ballien, Regional Chaplain Fr Jack Baker and Fr Enzo Addari celebrated mass with Fr Mark Prell.
After mass a very nice luncheon was served by the parish members honoring us for our works through Alhambra.
I’ve attached a few photos should you wish to share them.
