Honoring “servant leaders,” the 15th annual Harvest of Hope at the MCM Eleganté recognized two outstanding Catholic leaders who are celebrating their 50th anniversaries of religious life, Monsignor Jeremiah McGrath — or Father Jerry –  pastor of Saint Anthony Cathedral Basilica, and Sister Ester Dunegan, chancellor for the Diocese of Beaumont.
