Garces 'Family' Mass

“Remember the Sabbath day – keep it holy.”

That’s a commandment, straight out of the mouth of God to Moses. "Keeping it holy” means no work AND going to Mass. Sunday Mass is about giving the Lord the praise He is due and it's about spending time with the family God gave us, including our Garces Family and all of the  wonderful things that Jesus has done and wants to do in your life. Garces family, here is your invitation. Once a month, share in the celebration of the Eucharist with your Garces family and make it a tradition. If you're interested in 'Garces Family Mass' see your Theology teacher or coach to plan a Mass to attend together.

Service Hour Opportunities
Our Bakersfield community counts on us every year to be of service to them as they put on fundraisers, host festivals and work tirelessly to provide for those in need. Today, please stop by Mr. Cobb's office to check out all of the many service hour opportunities we have available. Remember our community is counting on us!
