Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are already in the new year. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you will have a fantastic 2021.
We celebrated memorable Christmas liturgies during the pandemic. Thank you for your continued support of our basilica. Your generosity is appreciated more than you know.
Fr. Chesco is very talented and gifted us with two beautiful Christmas creches. The time, effort and heart he put into them have beautified our church and encouraged us to meditate more deeply on the birth of Jesus during this holy season. Thank you Fr. Chesco.
Many thanks to Cindy, Juan, Luz and helpers for decorating the basilica with colorful poinsettias and Christmas trees. The sanctuary still looks beautiful.
On Christmas morning the group of our parishioners who form the Missionaries of St. Mary shared breakfast with the homeless. They also distributed book bags filled with goodies. I want to thank them for their giving hearts. Muchas gracias.
St. Mary School finished its first semester. I want to thank our principal Joyce Price, all the teachers and students for implementing and following the necessary guidelines. Because of their diligence our children were able to study in the classroom instead of on line during such a difficult Covid – 19 era.
