Festivals

Life shouldn’t be all work and no play. That’s why we have a festival each year.

Many farmworkers have smartphones, which they use to stay in contact with their spouses and children. We provide free WIFI services to  enable them to use Skype to call home.

Farmworkers were asking for medical assistance on Sunday evenings because they were ill and unable to speak English.

Father Antonio Illas, originally from Puerto Rico, provides a Spanish Sunday service from 6pm to 7pm.
