5. Our Annual Fiestas Patrias Celebration will be 3 weekends of Drive-Thru Food Sales. The first sale will be the weekend of September 13th and will be Tamales! Orders will be 6 for $10 and a dozen for $20. They can be bought and picked up on that weekend, or you can buy pre-sale tickets after Mass.
6. As you may have heard, State guidelines have allowed our county to return to indoor activities and worship. However, due to our numbers and to allow as many Mass attendees as possible, we will continue to have weekend Masses outdoors.
7. We are happy to welcome Fr. Alberto Villafan as our new Associate Pastor. Fr. Alberto is currently completing his time of isolation, in accordance with Franciscan guidelines, and will begin ministry next week.
