SJU 校慶 Celebrations…

IMG_9484It seems to rain this week every year, and yep, today we awoke to torrential rain ~ but hey the rain stopped, and by lunchtime the sun was even out trying to shine yeah!

Just in time as the annual celebration week at St. John’s University reaches its peak with zillions of people here today for formal and well, not-so-formal celebrations…..

Yesterday was the annual Memorial Service for Bishop James Wong, founder of SJU – in thanksgiving for his life and commitment, attended by all the students who receive scholarships from a fund established in his memory…

Then this morning the formal celebrations with VIP guests took place in the big auditorium…. while outside the main boulevard was (and still is) filled with people and entertainment…

Every department is here offering everything from massage to games to the SJU Chaplaincy offering second-hand clothes and paper flowers, and there’s food, food and more food…
