Silver Jubilee / Growth of Parish



On August 22, 1939, the Saints Anthony and Margaret Parish began the celebration of its silver jubilee with a Pontifical mass by the Most Rev. Theo. H. Reverman. The sermon was delivered by the Rev. Francis Nowak. At noon a banquet was served at the school hall by the Ladies of the parish.

At this Mass, the parishioners gave thanks to Almighty God for His guidance and for the spiritual graces which were showered upon the parish in the last twenty-five years. They were consoled, too, that the sacrifices they made and the loyalty to their parish over the years had not been in vain.

The silver jubilee celebration was a grand start to the 1939-40 school year in which 20 students would graduate.
