Outdoor shrine to be blessed

Although the major celebration of our Patronal Solemnity will be kept on Sunday, July 13th, the actual Feast Day of Our Lady of the Atonement will not go unmarked. On July 9th, at 7:00 p.m., we will be blessing the new outdoor Shrine and the Holy Mass will be celebrated at that altar. This also will commemorate the anniversary of the first Mass celebrated on the parish grounds, which took place on July 9th 1985. This stone altar marks the place where the first Mass was offered, and within it is the original wooden altar we used on that occasion.
