Life Celebration Rally - Leonadtown High School

Services:
St. John Francis Regis Catholic Church
Saturday, November 14, 2009
11:00 AM
Mass of Christian Burial

Life Celebration Rally. Due to the current weather and the likelihood that the rain will continue through Friday night, the Jordan Paganelli Life Celebration Rally (JP-LCR) at Leonardtown High School will be moved INDOORS to the school's GYMNASIUM. The facility has been rented for the event and is still being sponsored by Pastor Terry Baxley from Cornerstone Presbyterian Church. Date and time remain the same: Friday (13 Nov) starting at 7:00pm. The GYMNASIUM should be able to accommodate close to TWO THOUSAND people. However, we ask for your patience and flexibility as this venue is obviously not as large as the stadium. We expect to have many sitting on the floor of the basketball court. The JP-LCR will be open to the public and is meant to provide an opportunity for anyone/everyone to share and celebrate Jordan's magnificent life in an informal setting. As mentioned earlier…..we expect THOUSANDS to attend. Please don't be late…..we WILL start at 7:00pm. Please plan accordingly for carpooling, traffic, and parking. There will be music and pictures. Following opening remarks, a prayer will be offered during a "candlelight moment of silence". Glow Sticks will be provided/distributed for the "Candlelight Memorial". After that, we will shift gears and ramp-up the LIFE CELEBRATION? by way of an "Open Mic Night". The lights will come back on…….and…..anyone/everyone will be invited/encouraged to come up to the microphone and share a memory/experience/anecdote of their connection with Jordan. Teachers, coaches, parents, kids are all invited to speak. Share whatever is on your mind: happy, funny, sad, corny, stupid, heartwarming, intimate…..whatever moves you. Don't worry about format or delivering a "perfect" story. It's simply about sharing memories. As that draws to a natural end…… people can simply exit the gym when they are ready …..and/or….hang around and share more stories. We may turn the lights back off at the end so as to file out with just our Glow Sticks lighting the way. NO dress code—Most are wearing JP T-shirts, jeans, etc.


Memorial Service. Jordan's Memorial Service will be held this Saturday (14 Nov) at 1100 at St John Francis Regis Parish (commonly known as "St John's Church") on St John's Road in Hollywood Maryland (just off Route 235). As mentioned before, this day would have been Jordan's 18th Birthday. Again, please plan accordingly with carpooling, traffic, and parking……we expect the church to be completely full. Also as mentioned….there is absolutely NO DRESS code for the memorial service (except no Jeans or Shorts). Most of us will be in one of the many different "JP" T-Shirts. Jordan wanted everyone to be informal and comfortable.

Memorial Reception. Jordan's Memorial Reception will be immediately following the service (~ 1145) in the St John's auditorium adjacent to the church. There will be music, video, picture slide shows, photo albums, and other personal items on display…….along with food and beverages. At some point, we will have a microphone available for the kids (and anyone else) to share a few stories/memories of Jordan (similar to what we have planned for Friday night…..but in a smaller, more intimate setting).

Internment/Burial. Jordan will be laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery on Thursday, 3 December at 2:00pm. More details to follow. Expect carpooling and possibly a bus to transport people to D.C.

Hotel Accommodations. A special (group) block of rooms have been reserved at the Hampton Inn for anyone who needs one. A special rate of $79.00 per night has been offered. Rooms can be reserved by calling 301-863-3200 and asking for the Paganelli Family group block.

From BWI - take 97 south to Rt. 3/301 South (Bowie - Crofton). Follow to Rt. 4 south. Continue about an hour and cross the Solomons Bridge. At the light make LEFT onto Rt. 235. Go about 4 miles and the Hampton Inn is on the right next to the Chrysler/Jeep dealer and the Damon's Grill.
