Flag installed at Priests’ Retirement Villa

An American flag is now flying at the St. Rose of Lima Priests’ Retirement Villa thanks to the Father Malloy Assembly of Knights of Columbus.

The Knights presented the flag to the villa in a ceremony Sept. 27. 

“I want to add my gratitude on behalf of the community of priests who live here and staff for this wonderful display of patriotism that you afford us that we may have our proud American flag flying in front of this institution,” said Bishop Emeritus Paul S. Loverde. “Be sure to inform all my brother Knights we will be praying for our country and its needs these days.”

“We are delighted to have this opportunity to make this presentation, first to indicate our appreciation to our shepherds, and second, to display our continued pride and thanks for the liberties we enjoy as Americans,” said Knight Randy Bordelon, a parishioner of St. John the Beloved Church in McLean.
