UPDATE AS OF APRIL 5, 2021
THANK YOU!!!

Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers that helped us with our Easter services. We had tremendous support from parishioners who served as greeters, ushers, Lectors, musicians, cantors, drive through volunteers, videographers, church cleaners, and Eucharistic Ministers. We could not have done it all without you. You have our sincerest thanks and heartfelt gratitude for your time, service, and commitment during this past Easter season. We also want to extend a very big thank you to Rico Abarca, Head Sacristan, for making sure our liturgies were on point and to his team for the beautiful decorations in our church. We are so blessed to be a part of this amazing parish!

Most Sincerely,
The Parish Leadership Team
