In this Year of Faith as well as a “time of unprecedented challenges,” it is a great grace for our Home to celebrate the gift of 64 years of married life of two of our Residents. Joseph and Sue Cafazza, our Resident couple, received a special blessing from Father Jim Beegan, MSF, our Home’s chaplain, during a Mass celebrated on June 15, 2013.
According to the story shared by this lovely couple, Joseph fell in love with Sue, a young girl in the neighborhood. Sue still remembers the blue dress she wore for their first date on the “Admiral,” one of the Mississippi riverboats at the time. They truly witness that “marriage is more than a civil contract; it is a life-long covenant of love between a man and a woman.”
