New Jerusalem Community 50th Anniversary Celebration
Celebrate in the Virtual Portiuncula
Sunday, November 7 from 4 - 6pm
Our New Jerusalem Community 50th Anniversary Zoom sessions were recorded so the living legacy and fruit of our 50+ years would be available to all. Catch Up in the Virtual Kitchen* happened on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 6, and featured scores of people responding to the question, “What was New Jerusalem’s impact on your life?” and Fr. John Quigley’s remarks.
Contemplate in the Upper Room* happened on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 7, and included an extended meditation and prayerful remembrance of members who have passed and joined our “great cloud of witnesses.”
Celebrate in the Portiuncula* included a retelling of the history of New Jerusalem Community; remarks by Fr. Richard, and tributes to Sr. Pat Brockman, Fr. John Quigley and Richard.(*Kitchen, Upper Room, and Portiuncula were special places where we gathered at 745 Derby Ave., Cincinnati, OH, to catch up over food, pray and celebrate.)

Offering of Trees
Through the generosity of scores of members, former members and friends of New Jerusalem Community, one thousand trees have been planted through the Arbor Day Foundation in commemoration of the New Jerusalem Community 50th Anniversary.
The trees were donated in the name of New Jerusalem Community and to honor both living and deceased community members.
