Hoy en la Parroquia San Cristóbal

Tomorrow is our Fiesta de Acción de Gracias, or Harvest Thanksgiving Service. The Altar Guild, as it their tradition, purchased fruit and vegetables to decorate the chancel. These will all be donated to los pobres after the service tomorrow. We will have one bilingual service tomorrow, and then head across the street to the patio of Instituto Episcopal San Cristóbal  for our Parish Thanksgiving luncheon. It's almost a pot luck, with food donated by the various guilds of the parish (I roasted a turkey) and it has become a tradition at the parish.

Padre Canonigo Luís Cáceres had a service with some of the students from the school; I don't remember what this was about, but the Lovely Mona took photos. They're probably going to do some sort of Servico Social para los pobres (social service with the poor). That's what they do!

We'll have photos of all the happenings mañana, también.

Susan click and enlarge the foto. Your ocra is actually corn!

BTW, I see papas, piña, chayote, calabaza, maíz, repollo, camote y papaya.

Good stuff for el Día de Acción de Gracias!

Dah.veed is quick to correct me, Padre. But sometimes I am right. Thanks for the support!

Oh, that foto.

I was thinking the foto of the food in front of the altar.

To be honest, I thought that I was seeing okra in that foto. But when I enlarged it I saw that what I thought was okra, was actually corn! So I thought Susan was making the same error that I had made and needed to enlarge the foto to see what I could finally see.

I See You!
