Bishop Ryan’s 25th Anniversary Celebration

Our retired bishop Sylvester Ryan will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his ordination as Bishop on Monday, June 1st, 2015. There will be a 6:30 p.m. Mass at Madonna del Sasso Church, Salinas, on this day, followed by light reception in Cross Hall. Bishop Ryan has asked that there be no gifts at this event. As many of you know, Bishop Ryan is a great advocate and supporter of Catholic education. If you want, you may offer a gift to the Bishop Ryan Tuition Opportunity Trust in his honor. This trust provides tuition assistance directly to families in need who could not otherwise afford a Catholic education for their child(ren).

Annual Parish BBQ, June 21, 2015,
  after 11:15am Mass

Mark your calendars: this year, our parish BBQ will be happening on Father’s Day – what better day, huh? On that day we will not have 9am Mass since our “fathers” will be busy getting the BBQ ready. The goal of this ministry is to bring parishioners and non-parishioner guests together in fellowship for a delicious beef, chicken, fish – and maybe wild boar/sausages – barbeque. Live music by some of our parishioners and guest musicians and soloists will enhance the joy of this celebration. Lots of volunteers are needed for cooking, serving and cleaning, there are sign up sheets at the entrance of the church for volunteers.
