As the fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese Army was imminent, a new chapter in American courage and care was written by the brave people who were part of President Gerald Ford’s “Babylift” that evacuated some 2500 babies and orphans to safety.

A memorial service will be held for Patti on Saturday, April 29th @ 2pm in the cathedral.
Rest eternal grant to her O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon her. May her soul, and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Taken from the Latin word signifying “darkness” or “shadows”, “Tenebrae factae sunt”, means “darkness came over the whole land” (Mark 15:33, Matthew 27:45, Luke 23:44). Tenebrae evokes a somber mood which is not dispelled until Holy Week concludes in the Great Vigil of Easter. The appointed Psalms, lessons, and prayers form a prolonged contemplation of the events of Jesus’ last days, beginning with the Last Supper, reliving the betrayal, abandonment, judgment, death, and ending with his burial. These terrors are amplified by the extinguishing of candles until the end, when one light is left burning providing an obscure hint of the promised Resurrection. At the liturgy’s end, the ministers and people depart silently through the shadows cast by the solitary flame.
