of the Mass by the Marian Vicar General from Rome…

Father Joe Roesch, MIC and our Provincial Father Kaz Chwalek, MIC… Father Mike Callea, MIC and all the Midwest Marians that helped us celebrate this auspices occasion… especially honored to have the Marians from Lithuania represented  by Father Tomas Miliauskas, MIC… the Illinois Police Reserves (IPR)…the Knights of Columbus… Mr. Joe Hanrahan the Head of School from Marianapolis in Thompson, CT…what good has come of this through the intercession of our Blessed… a possible
student exchange program with the Marian High School in Marijampole,
