The Shrine in the Courtyard


This outdoor Shrine altar marks the site on which the first Mass was offered on the parish property. It was celebrated by Archbishop Emeritus Patrick F. Flores, with several of us priests concelebrating. The original altar, constructed of wood, is now encased by this stone altar.

This picture was taken recently, showing the morning sun filtering through the surrounding trees, and forms what resembles the rays depicted in the picture of Divine Mercy.
