Plans are under way for the second St. Joseph’s Orphanage and Children’s Home reunion on Saturday, Aug. 2, from 2 to 4 p.m. Former residents, staff and their family members are invited to attend the afternoon event, to be held at the Garvey Room at Trinity Gardens, 3825 NW 19th St., Oklahoma City.

Operational from 1912 to 1965, St. Joseph’s Orphanage, 7300 N.W. 39th St., Bethany, Okla., was home to hundreds of children. The orphanage was closed in 1965, due to growth in foster care services provided by the State of Oklahoma.

Attendees can also register by mailing their information to Jane Moon, Catholic Charities, 1501 N. Classen Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73106.
