Thank you to the St. Sebastian’s Young Ladies’ Inst. for hosting the annual “Women of the Year” celebration of the Santa Rosa Diocese Council of Catholic Women. Bishop Robert Vasa said mass and delivered a heartfelt homily expressing gratitude and celebration of the women volunteers nominated by their pastors throughout the diocese. Thank you to the Marian Sisters of Santa Rosa choir. Irene Deem and Vera Bohan represented St. Elizabeth and St. Colman, nominated by Fr. Luis. It was very instructional to listen to the biographies of the nominees, to learn of the various ministries conducted throughout the diocese. Thank you Fr. Luis for nominating us to this inspiring event.
The lunch was delicious and especially appreciated as the caterer had her electricity turned off the morning of the event. Everything was transferred to St. Sebastian’s and was served without a hitch.
