Easter Triduum - The parish's Holy Thursday liturgy commemorated the Last Supper. As a symbol of humility of service, Fr. Roberto Amoruso washed the feet of several parishioners. On Good Friday, the passion was read and the Cross was brought to the altar front where parishioners kissed it. After the service, Fr. Roberto led the Stations of the Cross outdoors. Parishioners meditated the suffering of Jesus Christ at each of the 14 stations that were placed on the church grounds. On Saturday evening, the church lights were out and a fire was lit outdoors in front of the church. Candles were distributed to the people and everyone gathered around the fire. Fr. José Cortes, assisted by priests from the FSCB, the deacon and several altar servers, blessed the fire and the Paschal Candle. Fr. José lit the Paschal Candle from the fire and the people lit their candles from the Paschal Candle. Deacon Michele Benetti processed the Candle through the church lifting it three times while he sang Lumen Christi. Then the people processed to the pews. The deacon sang the Exsultet and the readings were read in English, Spanish, and Tagalog. The lights in the church were turned on and the Gloria was sung accompanied by the organ and bells. After the Epistle and the Gospel were read and the homily delivered by Fr. José in English and Spanish, the Baptismal Liturgy commenced. Four catechumens were baptized. See program.

Feast, Jan. 5, 2014
By Chris Tan
On January 5, 2014, approximately one hundred religious education students, their parents, and catechists led by Fr. Ettore Ferrario, Director of Religious Education, gathered in the Colonial Room to celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany. The assembly began with the recitation of the Angelus and the singing of two Epiphany songs, “We Three Kings” and “Campana Sobre Campana”.
The children then displayed their creativity by dressing for and presenting a Nativity pageant featuring the visitation of the Magi.
The event concluded with an inspiring talk by Fr. Roberto Amoruso and the promise of “goody bags” awaiting the children after Mass.
