 In order to continue one of our most successful school fundraisers, we are looking for some Booth Chairs as well as some Booth Chair Shadows for our 2017 Summerfest. Shadows work alongside the Booth Chair for one year, then take over that area for the next year’s Summerfest. Some of these Chairs will be leaving the school as their last child graduates, so new Chairs are in high demand!


We are looking for new Chairs in the following areas…


2 Food Chairs to shadow Wayne Carvahlo and Adrian Lugo


Chicken Bowl Booth to shadow Brad Halderman


Event Chair to shadow Melinda Ganahl (this position does not require previous Summerfest Booth Chairing)


Sponsorship: Melissa Williams is looking for one to two people to take over sponsorship


Pre-Ride Sale Tickets: This is one of the jobs where you can get all your hours in prior to the event so you can enjoy the weekend with your kids!


Please contact Melinda Ganahl at moc.o1527408348ohay@1527408348lhana1527408348gadni1527408348lem1527408348 or (714) 928-2086 if you have any questions!

Tree of Rememberence

Throughout the Advent-Christmas season we invite our parishioners to bring a small Christmas ornament, remembrance, or memento ornament of someone who is ill, suffering, or who has died. Our hope is to once again fill our special tree with the treasure of our hearts. We have provided on the front of the tree a special Dedication Prayer, so as you place your ornament or memento on the tree, your gesture of love is entrusted into the care and heart of God and our Faith Community. At each Eucharist on Christmas Day we will ritually entrust all the ornaments and the lives they represent to God in a special blessing and prayer. This Christmas holiday no one we hold dear in our hearts and memories will be forgotten.
