Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center was the site of our 60th Anniversary Celebration on October 6. Please enjoy these wonderful 60th Anniversary Celebration photos!
The evening began with a special Anniversary Mass celebrated by Archbishop Leonard Blair at 4:00 pm. The Gallery Choir from Saint Patrick – Saint Anthony Church sang at the Mass. (Watch for a video of the Mass coming soon)
The celebration continued after the Mass with a Wine Tasting. Guests enjoyed sampling wines from several different wineries accompanied by a delicious selection of hearty hors-d’oeuvres while trying their luck on over thirty raffles, which included several jewelry items, a Kate Spade backpack, and a Bird Feeder Basket.
At 9:00 pm OLC Administrator, Ron Miceli thanked everyone for attending the event and celebrating this special day with us. We are grateful to everyone who helped make our event a success. Sister Mary Ann drew the winning ticket for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan. Our winner, John Gallagher thought he was just making a donation to the retreat center. He never expected to win. We thank John for his support and we congratulate him on his win.
The funds raised from the raffle will help Our Lady of Calvary continue to offer spiritual retreats and programming for women in the Archdiocese of Hartford and beyond. We can now move forward with installing a new heating and cooling system for the retreat center.
We hope you enjoy these wonderful photos taken by Liz Carroll at our event,
