Congratulations, Fr. Harahan!
Last night, Rev. Msgr. Robert E. Harahan, S.T.D., our very own Fr. Harahan, received the Fidelity of Faith Award from The Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children.
The Gala was held at the beautiful Pleasantdale Chateau, where over 300 guests attended to honor three recipients. Father was surrounded by family and friends as he delivered an amazing acceptance speech. The evening continued with several video testimonials given by the St. Rose Board of Trustees and long-time pastoral staff, and a collage of our students flocking Father.
Thank you, Father, for your tireless deeds and support of our school!
