Jan. 25

                              The Celebration of the Jubilee of St. Paul,
                          Sun., Jan. 25, St. Paul's Church in SF, 1:30 –5:30 pm. 
The event was a success.  Thanks to Fr. Goode, who suggested it after the officers’ meeting with Bishop Wang early last year.  Fr. Goode  gave out guidelines at the August 2008 Officers’ meeting in East Palo Alto, and the officers, led by Br. Marten and Br. Perlas, met all the guidelines!  The attendance was good, around five hundred. Steve Ray and Dr. Ohm were equally good speakers.  The Music, by Frances Peterson and Anne Marie Mendieta,  was beautiful and enlivened the Mass.  It was evident that both musicians have worked together before.  Fr. Goode was at the Confessional during the entire conference  (very generous of him, and a great sense of sacrifice on his part!).  At the Mass, Bishop Justice thanked Fr. Goode for his faithful service of 31 years as Spiritual Director of the Legion in San Francisco.  The Host Pastor, Fr. Mario Farana was very accommodating, thanks to the good relationship between him and Br. Wehrmeister.  Br. Marten thanked the San Francisco Curia, specifically the two Praesidia that chaired the reception where people lingered and talked.  Overall, it was a great event – Legionaries shared time and talent – it was also worth all the expenses incurred.

March 22

              Acies, Sunday, March 22, 1:30 p.m., Holy Name of Jesus Church. 
This year was a great success for active and auxiliary members, and Bishop Ignatius Wang was the inspiring speaker. Bishop Wang mentioned that he was impressed and will attend an International Legion meeting in Taiwan.  Bishop Wang is retiring soon, so Senatus extends its best wishes to him. 

June 6 The Senatus Day of Recollection was held on Saturday, 8:30 AM to 3 PM, at St. Anne's Home, 300 Lake Street, SF. This event was very successful, and attended by more than 80 Legionaries. Thanks to Fr. Arong for his guidance as Retreat Master, and to the Sisters at St. Anne's Home for their hospitality. Thanks also to Br. Perlas and the Senatus Officers for arranging the retreat.

The one and half hour procession began at 1:30 pm in front of St Patrick’s Church, 756 Mission Street, and traveled up to Market Street, making a loop, at the end returning back to St Patrick’s for Benediction. The event was promoted beforehand in the Bay Area on Immaculate Heart Radio, and was attended by more than 200 people. Senior and Junior Legionaries were on hand to pass out Rosaries along the route. Thanks to the Fathers at St. Patrick's for their participation and help.
