SPECIAL MASS ON JANUARY 31, 2016

LITTLE FLOWER FACTS:
DID YOU KNOW?

The history of the Shrine of the Little Flower as a parish begins in 1926 the era of
Peace....Prosperity....Picnics....and Prohibition.  Calvin Coolidge was president of the
United States, Albert Ritchie was governor of Maryland, Howard Jackson was mayor of
Baltimore and the Shrine of the Little Flower came into being.

As early as 1921 there were requests for a new church in northeast Baltimore.  As a
result, in 1923, Archbishop Michael Curley agreed to purchase a piece of property for
the establishment of a new parish in an area bounded by what is now Belair Road,
Kentucky, Cardenas and Brendan Avenues.
 


(Page 2)




In the spring of 1926 Archbishop Curley appointed Father Thomas Wheeler as the
founding pastor of what was to become the Shrine of the Little Flower.  Archbishop
Curley originally wanted to name the new parish in honor of St. Brendan; however,
Father Wheeler requested that the newly canonized St. Therese of Lisiuex be honored
instead.  Brendan Avenue was named in the honor of St. Brendan.

It was not until July 6, 1926 that twenty-five men came together at the home of Mike
Horan to meet the new pastor for the first time.  They met weekly until October 13 with
one of their major tasks was to perform a census of the area.  Their census report was
presented on August 3 showing 463 families including 997 adults and 455 children.

On August 29, 1926, a contract was let for the construction of the first church building
at a cost of $8,604.00.

The church rose quickly and the first mass was celebrated on Sunday, October 24,
1926 with a total attendance of 1,075 for the four Masses celebrated that day.  The
church was a simple wooden chapel at the corner of Belair Road and Brendan Avenue.
The center aisle was flanked by rows of attached wooden chairs - six to a side.  Plain
glass globes acted as ceiling fixtures that supplemented the natural light from rows of
plain glass windows that lined the side walls.  Between the paired windows were
simply framed pictures of the Stations of the Cross. 

Thus the beginning of the Shrine of the Little Flower.

(Most of the above is from "A Story of the Parish 1926 - 1951", published to celebrate
the Shrine's 25th anniversary and "Shrine of the Little Flower School 75th Anniversary
Grand Reunion").

____________________________________________________________

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Over six hundred people attended the 11:00 A.M. Mass on August 9th, to welcome
Archbishop Lori to our parish. The support of the Alumni Association allowed the
parish to host a well-attended reception after a very special Mass. Many of us were
fortunate to speak briefly with the Archbishop. A special thanks to Bob Campbell and
his wife Helen for all their hard work in coordinating this event.

A special thanks also to Board Member, Tim Pugh for arranging the participation of
The Irishman’s Chorale. Their music added a special note to the Mass.

There were many alumni present, but there were a few special attendees we would like
to acknowledge:

Evelyn Kane Kraft, class of 1935.  She was one of the graduates of the first full eight
year class.

Bernadette Frey Hergenhahn, class of 1942.  She was baptized 87 years ago, in 1928,
at Little Flower.

Brianna Brown, class of 2004.  She is the youngest grad to attend the mass.  The
school closed in 2005.

A special thanks also to Dan Bentzen, for coordinating the use of the school hall for our
reception, and for assisting with the handicap lift.

BULL ROAST
Question:
Have you been pondering where you can go on Sunday, Oct. 11, 2015
for good fellowship and companionship, have a full, all-you-can eat buffet and open bar
while, at the same time, either listening to a great DJ play the music you like and/or
watching the Ravens completely dominate the Cleveland Browns on big screen TVs?
Not to mention the possibility you might win a gorgeous potted mum or even $250,
$500 or $1,000 on Raffle payouts or more on the 50/50s?

 

Well, there is only one correct answer to that question…………


(Page 1)


The 10th Annual Bull and Oyster Roast
Columbus Gardens
(4301 Klosterman Ave.)
Sunday, October 11, 2015 from 1:00 until 5:00 P.M.
(Food served from 1:00 until 4:00 P.M.)

Fresh salad bar and Taco bar, Maryland Crab Soup, Oyster Stew, Raw and Padded Oysters. Choice Top
Round of Beef, Virginia Baked `Honey Ham and/or seasoned Turkey Breast. A Hot Buffet consisting of Shrimp
Creole with Rice, Hot and Mild Sausage, Breaded Chicken, String Beans in Onion Gravy, Mashed Potatoes
with Gravy and Penne Pasta and Meatballs. Additional compliments are Virginia Baked Ham and Genoa
Salami along with American, Swiss and Provolone cheeses. Creamy Cole Slaw, Potato and Macaroni Salads,
Rye, Wheat and White breads and French Dinner Rolls. And, assorted Sheet Cakes for dessert.

Good drinks complement good food: the bar, as always, is OPEN and FREE! There is something for
everyone’s taste; alcoholic (beer, wine, mixers and liquor) or non-alcoholic (soda, O’Douls or virgin mixers).

The Ravens play the Browns at 1:00 P.M. You will not miss a second of the game! See it live on the 52" TV
in the lounge! GO RAVENS!

$1000, $500 & $250 Raffle Payouts Plant & Cake Wheel 50/50 Raffles

The music of your choice by DJ Master!

DJ Master can play virtually any music of any type or any era you choose. Simply tell him what you would like
to hear.

Tickets are $45.00 per person or $400.00 per table of 10. Your contacts for tickets
are: Susan Scheerer at 410-488-7169 (littlefloweralum@comcast.net) or Chuck Snyder
at 410-254-8005. Please note that there is an increase in ticket prices. Since the
Annual Bull and Oyster Roast inception in 2006, the ticket price had remained at
$40.00 per person. However, prices have finally forced us to do what we have tried
not to do – raise prices! If you will please note the ticket price has risen to $45.00!

We can offset that by offering a full table price of $400.00 for a table of 10. However,
this works ONLY if there is ONE person at the table responsible for all 10 tickets….that
is, if one person pays the $400.00. We cannot offer the $400.00 price if each person
at the table is responsible for his/her own ticket(s).

After October 1, we will try to accommodate requests for tickets and for specific seating, however, we
may not be able to guarantee either, so please try to place your order for tickets as early as possible.

We are sorry but there are no tickets sold at the door.

Attending the Roast? We would greatly appreciate your donations. The food
pantry needs whatever non-expired dry or canned goods you would care to donate
(cash donations are also greatly appreciated). And, without your donations of cakes
and other baked goods, the Plant and Cake Wheel will be just the Plant Wheel. Thank
you in advance for your generosity.

(Page 2)


ANNUAL RAFFLE
Enclosed in this newsletter you will find tickets for the annual raffle. First prize is
$1,000, second prize is $500, and third prize is $250. Suggested donations are $2 or 3
for $5. Winning tickets will be drawn at the Bull Roast (you need not be present to
win). Please use the form in this newsletter to submit your ticket stubs and money.
Your continued support of the raffle is greatly appreciated.


LITTLE FLOWER SUNDAY
Father Mike invites everyone to attend the 11:00 Mass on Sunday, October 4th, to
celebrate Little Flower Sunday. Please come, and support the Shrine.

MAINTENANCE REPORT
For the first time in several years, Little Flower was able to address many concerns
that had been put on the back burner due to the cost factors. The following projects
have been completed within the last two months:
Complete restoration of the murals over the three altars. This is the first time that this
had been done in many years. It was very costly, but absolutely necessary or the
murals would have deteriorated beyond repair. The results are outstanding. Please
visit the church to see for yourself.
Exterior concrete work that included pointing up the steps and patching various areas.
Repairs to broken stained glass windows.
Cleaning of the upholstery on the chairs in the sanctuary, and the altar rail kneeling
pads.
Restaining of the church doors and the main door of the rectory.
Replaced carpet in a rectory meeting room.
Window joint caulking of the exterior of the stained glass windows.
Replaced caulking on all of the interior of the stained glass windows.
Painting of all exterior railings of the church and rectory.
Plastering and painting of various areas of the church and rectory.
Repairs to various water damaged areas of the church and rectory.
Miscellaneous items including rental of lifts to access upper areas.

Anyone interested in hearing them again can obtain schedule information from their website (http://irishmans-chorale.org):

 Amhránaí Na Gaeilge, the Irishman’s Chorale, was founded in 1985 by Larry Feely, and is
one of the largest all male Irish choruses in the United States.  The Chorale is dedicated to the
preservation of Irish culture and history through music.

Approximately 50 members come mainly from the central Maryland area. Many individual members
ave a musical background, or also perform in community and/or church musical groups.  Our
repertoire is comprised of both traditional and contemporary music by Irish composers and lyricists,
and includes a variety of patriotic, spiritual, ballad, sea chanty, and fun songs.  Our director is Mr.
Leslie Luco, and our assistant director and accompanist is Ms. Bonnie Davis.”

Parking for Mass and the reception will be available in the playground behind the

                   2013 Bullroast Report

On behalf of the members of the Board of the Shrine of the Little Flower Alumni Association, thank
you very much for your participation in this year’s Bull and Oyster Roast.

The Roast was a definite success! We surpassed previous Roasts in attendance and, as a result, in
money raised in support of the Shrine.

There were 344 attendees at this year’s roast, some 93 more than last year. Two of the reasons for
that increase may have been a result of the three classes holding reunions at the roast, and also the
change in venue from the Eastwind to Columbus Gardens.

Planning for next year’s roast has started and we are working with Columbus Gardens to make it
even better than this year’s, and you can play a very significant part in seeing that happens. I would
ask that if you have comments, negative or positive regarding the 2013 roast to send them to me via
email at: snyder.charles@ymail.com. Your response could go a long way in helping us determine
why the Roast was so well attended this year as well as indicating what we might have done better.
Please include your name (along with maiden name if appropriate) and class year. For those of you
who are not Shrine grads please include your school and class year. Last, please use the word
“ROAST” as the title. This will help me weed out any spam. Naturally, should you wish to remain
anonymous you may certainly do so.

Again, thank you very much and be assured that the money raised will be put to very, very good use,
supporting the Shrine of the Little Flower Parish!
 
For the Board I offer our prayers and best wishes.

Charles H. Snyder (’53)
