Over 50,000 people participated in the Walk for Life in San Francisco, this past Saturday, and St Patrick's seminarians played in major role in walkling and hosting brother seminarians throughout the West Coast. Three buses of seminarians, priests and supporters left St Patrick's on Saturday morning for the march to SF City Hall. St Patrick's provided food and lodging for those from out of town and out of state. And many guests celebrated Sunday Mass with us.
The dinner served when the walkers returned to campus on Saturday night was a special treat, as it was prepared by our always supportive Vietnamese community under the direction of Mrs. Trina Phan-Vu. Walkers were served homemade Pho, a nourishing noodle, meat and and vegetable broth that is a Vietnamese specialty.
