Mass- September 13, 2015

The mass this year and in past years, is celebrated to thank God for the Harvest and to celebrate with those children and their families who have been preparing for the Sacrament of the Eucharist. The mass was followed by a meal for all that was provided by the Knights and some of the farmworker families.
