As reported at the Fire Hall Museum, this April 15, 1968, fire was the fourth largest fire in St. Paul that year at $231,000.
The main event begins with the 10:00 Mass celebration on Sunday, April 15, with Fr. Steve Adrian presiding. Brunch follows in the Social Hall and will include a birthday cake for Fr. Steve’s 76th birthday (freewill offerings accepted). There will be pictures and rememberings of the fire that destroyed our church in 1968, as well as general parish memorabilia.
Note that there will also be an informal showing of memorabilia with light snacks, refreshments and live background music on Saturday evening, April 14, from 5 to 7 pm in the Social Hall (for those who can’t make it Sunday). Free admission.
