Important Parish News
What would Pope Francis tell the Central Valley? What message and motivation does his example of following Christ mean to you, and for Catholics in our parish? Monsignor Raymond Dreiling, Vicar General of the Diocese of Fresno, and two other Central Valley delegates have just returned from being part of the Vatican's delegation to Bolivia for the World Meeting of Popular Movements. They will share with us what it was like to be part of such a momentous occasion, and share in a Papal blessing of water that came from our very own Central Valley. All are welcome to hear the Pope's urgent message on the environment and putting our faith in action. This event will take place on Wednesday July 22nd, at St. Anthony Mary Claret Catholic Church in Fresno from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
