The Secular Augustinian Recollect Chalice

In the Monastery Chapel on October 1, a very special Mass took place during which a new chalice was blessed. The chalice was given to the Monastery by Antoinette D’Archi, a gift in memory of her husband, Virgil, a cousin of one of the SARs, Gloria Fernandi. This family has long been a part of the Monastery. Wakes of two of the members and a wedding reception of another were held on the grounds in the early days of the Monastery.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was attended by several members of the family, five priests of the Augustinian Recollect Order: Fr. Joseph Gallardo, OAR, Provincial, Fr. Fredric Abiera, OAR, Provincial Secretary, Fr, Frank Cregan, OAR, Provincial Procurator, Fr. Charles Huse, OAR, Fr. Jorge Alberto Niño, OAR, several SARs, and friends.

Following Mass, a warm and tasteful reception was held in the Monastery dining room.
