The Miracle of St. Hilary's
Sunday, March 3, 2013
The miracle of St. Hilary's was not the traditional kind.
Since 1888, the small white church of St. Hilary's has looked out from a Tiburon hillside over Richardson Bay, just north of the Golden Gate.
The legend relates that when the railroad was built to Tiburon from the north in 1889, builder Peter Donahue was able to obtain a right-of-way for the tracks only by promising the Reed family, holders of the land grant, that he would build a Catholic church on the hillside above the town.
For 71 years Tiburon Catholics worshiped in the little wooden church on the hill, while the subdivisions spread across the land below. Then in 1959 they moved to a new and more commodious parish church not far away.
Some residents of Tiburon and nearby Belvedere were fearful that the historic landmark would be torn down and replaced by apartment houses. Mrs. Robert Bastian, wife of The Chronicle's cartoonist,
took the lead in organizing the Tiburon Landmarks Society and was elected president. The first installment of the miracle took place at about the same time. A single donor with a passion for anonymity

God bless Mrs. Lee Jouvré - and all our benefactors!
This week we received a check for $50,000 from the estate of one of our faithful and long-time parishioners, who passed away on June 5 of this year.
Given the financial crunch we (and most parishes) are experiencing, this generous bequest is a great blessing for your church, and we ask you to remember Lee in the charity of your prayers, as she reaches out from the next life to continue helping St. Hilary through her estate planning.
