The weekend of August 20 and 21, 2011, at Saint Mary's, we received the visit of Father Kevin Hanlon MM. He helped Fr. Bob at all Saturday and Sunday Masses and he delivered the homilies in English and Spanish.
It was great!! We really enjoyed it. His message was very emotional and with a good sense of humor. I am sure that many people were touched with his kind but strong words about both his and the Maryknoll mission, his presence was a peaceful and loving reminder of what a missionary is.
On Saturday after the Mass in Spanish, the Maryknoll Affiliate Grupo Misionero Hispano de Santa Maria, cooked and served a light dinner in honor of Father Kevin and the parishioners were invited. We had a nice time with Fr. Kevin.
