In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

News from Ouida

(Ouida is one with eyes closed, second from left.)

On August 11th, I traveled with members of my Franciscan fraternity to the St. Clare Monastery in New Orleans to celebrate St. Clare's Feast Day with Mass and to celebrate with Sr. Fidelis her 75th year of religious life. After Mass and spending time with Sister in the lovely gardens of the monastery, the six of us went to lunch together. It was a wonderful day with great fellowship and time spent with our dear sister, Sr. Fidelis.

Sr. Fidelis once told me that she wanted a web page, and so I gave her one. She is very, very interesting and smart! She once took classes in two or three languages all at one time, studying with post-it notes on the wall. Her page is: We have been blessed to spend many hours with her. When she was younger, she was my spiritual director.

On August 29th, my Franciscan fraternity, held elections, and I was elected secretary and appointed webmaster again.
I have other websites and blogs which might interest some of you.

These Franciscan activities, websites, Maltese Rescue, grandbaby Peyton and family, and a job make up my life which is very blessed and very full.
