Annual Garage Sale & Annual Parish FIESTA 2021

To All San Antonio de Padua Families,
It is with sadness that I must convey that our Annual Garage Sale & Annual Parish FIESTA 2021 have been CANCELED.

Unfortunately, with the Covid-19 Pandemic we are all faced with great challenges.  Underlying my decision is the fact that 1/3 of our parish is over 65 years of age, and almost 1/2 of our  Garage Sale and Fiesta Volunteers are 65 years and over.  

Bishop Vann and I have discussed this matter, and we both feel your health and safety during these challenging days are as important as the care of your souls.

I have no doubt that we could have pulled it off!
Yes, we would be faced with challenges from the Health Department and I was most certain that your talents would help manage the issues at hand to make our Annual Fiesta a rousing success.  However, we must be prudent during these times.

I thank you for your continued support of the Annual Garage Sale and Annual Parish Fiesta.

In January 2022 I will reassess this decision as we anticipate putting the Pandemic behind us and moving forward into the Parish events of the New Year.  Unfortunately we are not there yet.

I pray you good health and an uplifting Spirit as we emerge from quarantine and readjust to the reality of the days ahead.

Fr. John Neneman
San Antonio de Padua del Canon.
