Parishioners and guests then moved across Harford Road to the St. Ursula School auditorium for a social that included Father Stephen E. Hook, pastor; former pastor Monsignor James A. Farmer; and pastor emeritus Monsignor A. Thomas Baumgartner.

They were joined by area clergy and Sister of Notre Dame de Namur Joan Kelly, principal of St. Ursula School.
