A jubilee celebration, shared generously among religious

Father Paulson Mundanmani, right, shared his celebration of 25 years of priesthood with his brother Father Santhosh Mundanmani. Both were ordained in India in 1990.
SPECIAL TO THE CATHOLIC VOICE

In a spirit reminiscent of Pope Francis' recent public recognition and appreciation of U. S. Women Religious, Christ the King Parish in Pleasant Hill extended an inclusive invitation to celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life.

On Oct. 25, Christ the King's pastor, Rev. Paulson Mundanmani, shared his celebration of 25 years of priesthood with his brother Rev. Santhosh Mundanmani. The brothers were ordained in India in 1990.

But Father Paulson also extended his celebration to include religious in the area.

About 35 priests concelebrated with the jubilarians. Of special note was the presence of Rev. Brian Joyce, the retired pastor of Christ the King.

In addition, 30 sisters attended, receiving very affirmative comments by the homilist, Rev. Jeff Finley as well as a special blessing by the congregation, led by Rev. Dan Danielson.

Carondelets, who founded Christ the King School and continue to serve in the parish, also attended.

They included Sisters Therese Martin, Judith Breslin, Anne Eugene Metcalf, Maureen Fallon, Joann Heinritz, Anna Marie, Mary Braun, Eleanor Eagan, Joanne Clare, Kathy Lang, Beverly Flynn and Anne Bernard.

Other congregations attending included Sisters Maureen Vianni and Dianne of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary; Sister Marietta Fahey of the Sisters of the Holy Family; Sister Francisco of the Franciscans; and Dominican Sisters Nicolina Kahler, Rosolia Steinback, Jodi and Dominic.

A reception, dinner and entertainment followed the liturgy.
