The Solemnity of Saint Jeanne Jugan was celebrated with honor on August 30. Most Reverend Andrzej Jerzy Zglejszewski was the Main Celebrant of the Eucharistic Celebration and Reverend August Iontosca, our Chaplain, Reverend Sean Suckiel, Vocation Director for the Brooklyn Diocese and friend of the Little Sisters, along with our three Resident priests concelebrated.
Although Bishop Zglejszewski has presided at a Profession Ceremony at Saint Ann’s Novitiate next door, this was his first time at Queen of Peace.
After Mass, the Residents went to their respective dining rooms where they were served cocktails and then a delicious dinner.
The celebration was not over! At 2:30 p.m., they gathered in the auditorium for the Jeanne Jugan bingo with cash prizes! The afternoon culminated with ice cream from Mr. Softee’s truck parked in front of the Home.
