2015 Strawberry Luncheon

On May 19, 2015, the annual Strawberry Luncheon was held at a new location--the Orchard City Banquet Hall, just one block from the Marie Rose Center. The 5th grade girls from St. Mary's School joined us and were a big help--escorting guests to their tables, setting the desserts out, and filling water glasses. A big thank you to Dana Carollo and the St. Mary's mothers who once again volunteered their time to come serve. Thank you to Kristin Dickens and The Party Helpers for the wonderful food. It was wonderful to see so many familar faces, and some new ones; Sister Kathryn Ondreyco showed a slideshow updating everyone on the lives of the Sisters.

Los Gatos Farewell Open House

2013 Christmas Appeal "stuffing" party

One card, two card, three card, four
when we work together, it's not a chore

Mid-November at Sisters of the Holy Names means it is time for sisters, associates, and friends from near and far, to gather and 'fulfill' the SNJM Christmas Appeal. Four items get stuffed into each of the 10,000 envelopes (wow! that's a lot of work)... we appreciate every heart and hand that comes to help. With serious concentration and nimble fingers, the work was finished in no time. We celebrate with 'take-out' pizza from T-Birds (a favorite local pizza parlour), housemade salad, cold beverages and door prizes. 

This is a great occassion for all of us to spend some quality time together, we thank each and every person from the bottom of our hearts.

2013 Marie Rose Guild Harvest Tea and Boutique

Nineteen fifth grade girls from Saint Mary's demonstrated their outstanding hospitality skills serving tea and coffee at the 2013 Harvest Tea held on October 24th at the Convent in Los Gatos. An assortment of cookies, fruit bread and other desserts accompanied the hot beverages. Sister Kathryn noticed we were blessed with three generations—Maureen O’Connell, her daughter Anne Milligan and 5th grade granddaughter Megan.

The Harvest Tea was preceded by the Marie Rose Guild Boutique. The guild members and our artistic Sisters had been very busy making an assortment of interesting and useful gift items. All proceeds from the tea and boutique help to support our retired and infirmed senior sisters.
