The original Chapel of our Founder, Fr. Thomas Judge, CM stands on the beautiful grounds of Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat. Our dedicated staff at the Shrine recently oversaw the detailed process of having the State of Alabama recognize the significance of this site to its history.
Each year the MSBT celebrate what is called “Founder’s Day” on November 23rd which is the death anniversary of our Founder, Fr. Judge, CM. This annual gathering celebrates the founding spirit and contributions of Fr. Judge, CM; Mother Boniface, MSBT; and Dr. Healy, MCA. This year’s Founder’s Day celebration was selected for the unveiling of the plaque erected by the Alabama Historical Commission officially marking this site.
Special thanks to Rev. David Hamm, ST; Sr. Gail Lambert, MSBT; and Sr. Beth Henken, MSBT and Br. Senan Gallagher, ST for your contributions to the day; to Elisabeth Donner, Executive Director of Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat; Fr. Raul Vasquez, ST, CTV Beam and Chris “Doc” Lammons for documenting this celebration on an episode of Intersections that can be viewed BY CLICKING THIS LINK.
Blessed be God the Father, who has created us.
Blessed be God the Son, who has redeemed us.
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, who sanctifies us.
Blessed be the Holy and Undivided Trinity, now and forever! Amen.
