What has happened at John Paul II Manor in 2015:
On Tuesday, December 29, we went to the restaurant called the The Dream and then went to see the Christmas lights Lakemont Park. Everyone who went had a great time.
Sunday November 1, we celebrated two happy events at John Paul II Manor with Bishop Mark Bartchak. Bishop Mark offered a Mass of Thanksgiving marking the 10th anniversary of John Paul II Manor. Concelebrating with Bishop Mark were Msgr. Arnold L. Gaus and Fr. John F. Brezovec. After Mass Bishop Mark blessed a beautiful bronze sculpture of Saint John Paul II that was recently installed at the entrance to the Manor. Bill Wassil, whose mother Catherine Leap lived with us, introduced the idea of commissioning the sculpture. He thought this an excellent way to commemorate not only the life of his mother but also the lives of other deceased residents whose families wished to offer financial support to this project. After the blessing residents and guests gathered in the dining room to enjoy a delicious turkey dinner. What a wonderful day for John Paul II Manor. Bishop Mark's homily may be accessed here and below are pictures of the event.
Thank You to all who have donated to this beautiful bronze bust.
Also since the weather was so nice in November we decided to take advantage of the wonderful days! So we went to Living Treasures in Donegal and spent the day with all the animals.
Since it was still nice weather who could pass up Turkey Bingo!
On Tuesday we are going to see Your a Good Man Charlie Brown!
In July we headed to Altoona to see the Curve play a game against the Erie Seawolves. The Curve played a great game and won. Then we stayed for fireworks.
On a beautiful day in June we went to Prince Gallitzin State Park for the day on the lake and a picnic. We really didn't want to leave because it was so beautiful.
In April we attended a play by Penn Cambria High School Students. The play Les Miserables was excellent and we applaud the students.
