Jesuits West Province Celebrates Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday Mass with Provincial Scott Santarosa, SJ, as celebrant and homilist was celebrated at Sacred Heart Jesuit Center, Los Gatos, March 25. With the Sacred Heart Jesuit Community, the Jesuits West Advancement Office hosted this liturgy and lunch as a gratitude event for Province benefactors. Thanks to the generosity of the 2015 Generations Capital Campaign, extensive renovations improved Sacred Heart Jesuit Center as an assisted care facility for 85 elderly and infirm Jesuit priests and brothers who reside there. The Province is grateful for its benefactors who continue to support the operating expenses which allow the provision of such compassionate care.

 

Fathers Dick Case, SJ, assistant superior of Sacred Heart Jesuit Community, Sam Bellino, SJ, Advancement Legacy Planning, and John Mossi, SJ, Advancement Benefactor Relations, concelebrated the Mass with Fr. Santarosa, who In his homily commended that Palm Sunday invites all of us "to wait, watch, pray, and surrender to the Lord in our daily deaths. We all are on a journey to God."

This gratitude day was planned by Francine Brown, advancement philanthropy officer for Northern California, assisted by Janelle Williams, advancement administrative assistant who lends much able support to special events. A festive lunch for 35 guests took place in the new Multi-Purpose Room and Library. Part of the program included an update on the ministries of Jesuits West Province by Fr. Santarosa.
