Join us at our Strawberry Luncheon, May 25th

The Sisters of the Holy Names invite you to join them at their annual Strawberry Luncheon on Wednesday, May 25, 11:30 am. The luncheon is held at the Orchard City Banquet Hall, Campbell Community Center. Tickets are $20 and by advance reservation.

May 1868 saw the arrival of the first Sisters of the Holy Names to California. May is the month to celebrate this anniversary and is a time to reflect on the years of ministry: remembering the students taught and lives touched; and give thanks for so much generosity. The Sisters have been a part of the fabric of the south bay since the 1950s: teaching at St. Mary’s in Los Gatos, St. Christopher and Saint Patrick School in San Jose, and running the Casa Maria Montessori, to name a few.

Gather your friends and come join the Sisters in celebration. We will have drawings for Gift Baskets as well as door prizes.

Tickets are available by calling 408-395-2868 by Wednesday, May 18th.


2015 Meals for Wheels Fundraiser

Friday, October 16, 2015
have Dinner at Home to support

the Sisters of the Holy Names

Meals for Wheels

Cook whatever you want or order in.
Put your ‘jammies’ on early, have dessert first.
Whatever you like. It’s your night.
You’re in the driver’s seat.
And when you count your blessings, we hope you’ll think of the Sisters
and make a donation.

Transportation for the Sisters at Our Lady of Fatima to attend special masses, funerals, SNJM community celebrations and outings requires special vehicles to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers. After looking into all the options, renting is the most economical. But even then, the cost adds up. Won’t you consider a gift to help bring the community together?


This is how some of you spent the evening:

Kathy Stayed Home, how about you?!

The Lavelle's Stayed Home with granddaughter Caitlin--sounds good to us!

Happy Birthday Jill! They Stayed Home and raised their glasses to toast the Sisters.

Caden Stayed Home and made Grandma and Grandpa Connelly some soup! How great is that?!


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

On May 18th, the Convent in Los Gatos hosted an open house for our benefactors, friends, and neighbors. Thirty Sisters and Associates volunteered their Sunday afternoon to meet, greet, and share stories and hospitality. It was a great opportunity for all to reminisce.

2014 Marie Rose Guild Strawberry Luncheon and Boutique

On May Day, the Marie Rose Guild hosted the final Strawberry Luncheon and Boutique held at the Convent. Both the Casa and Garden rooms were filled with attendees and Sister Kathryn Ondreyco thanked the guild members for their years of service. The food was catered by The Party Helpers and Kristin Dickens, and served by Dana Carollo and other volunteer mothers from St. Mary's School. We thank everyone who has supported the Guild over the years with your time, talents, gifts or attendance at one of our events.
