A record number attend the Memorial Mass 2012
A record number of St. Joseph Alumni attended the Mass to honor their sempais and friends who passed away in the past year. SJIS Alumni Association USA Chapter Adminstrator, George de Couto (’52) came all the way from LA to attend this event.
Mass was solemnly held, followed by a stroll to the Foreign Cemetery to pay our respect to the Statue of Our Lady of Faith and Fortitude. After the ceremony in front of the Statue, attendees paid respect the gravesite of the Brothers and Fathers that dedicated their lives to St. Joseph.
The event ended with a luncheon at Junkaikaku in Chinatown.
