Celebrating 25 Years
- Rejoicing in the Future -
In July of 2009 the parish began a month-long silver anniversary celebration with a Mass and potluck dinner on July 2 (our actual anniversary date). Our founding pastor, Fr. Jim Frerkes, joined us for the festivities. Pictorial history boards, prepared with the help of many who loaned their photographs from years past, presented an overview of the life of the parish in its first quarter century (!). On July 12, we returned (after a 25-year absence!) to Sunnyside School for a special bilingual Mass to commemorate the early days of the parish before
the church was built. A picnic on the school grounds followed.
Parishioners were treated to a movie presentation on the life of Elizabeth Ann Seton on July 18.
The grand finale event of our anniversary celebration was an afternoon concelebrated Mass on July 25, with Bishop Garcia, Fr. Frerkes, Fr. Lucas and other priests who have served the parish in the past. After Mass, parishoners enjoyed a potluck dinner with entertainment and music at the South Bay Community Center.
