Elizabeth Skurdahl, Development Coordinator, shares about Sunday’s gathering in Portland at St. Andrew Parish to celebrate 55 years of JVC Northwest:


The celebration began with a mass celebrated by Fr. John Whitney, SJ (St. Mary’s, Alaska ’81-82)  from Seattle.

After mass, folks gathered for a potluck meal and had the opportunity to participate in an open mic.
