With a little inspiration from Frank Sinatra tunes playing, Jennings at Brecksville’s resident cooking club enjoyed making fresh homemade pasta. Volunteer Carol brought her pasta making skills to teach the cooking club to make pasta from scratch. It was a wonderful lunch kickoff to the Mardi Gras celebration, where we enjoyed paczki and cocktails for dessert.
“Love never fails.” On Valentine’s Day, we recognized the lasting of couples with an inspirational celebration. Forty-seven couple from all Jennings’ locations, representing more than 2,100 combined years of marriage, were invited to renew their vows and enjoy a delicious dinner. Father Joe Pednekar celebrated Mass and invited couples to renew their vows, then blessed their marriages. Following the ceremony, the couples took a photo before an intimate dinner, where they were serenaded by pianist. It was a gift to celebrate the unconditional love exemplifed by these couples.
“Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous,
it is not inflated
it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered,
it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.”
-1 Corinthians 13, 4-8
Here are a few of the moments we captured of this celebration.
