This is your opportunity to experience and live out the Gospel Values as disciples of Christ which is not offered at many parishes in the Diocese of San Bernardino. We’re a unique group of individuals that believe that we can make a difference in bringing about change and social justice for the undocumented immigrant in our community, state and nation.
Our meetings are held in Modular 2, every first Wed. @ 7 p.m. Come join us!
Pueblo de Sal Y Luz in collaboration with St. Matthew’s Social Concerns Ministry collected clothing ( old jeans, long-sleeved shirts and baseball caps ) which were donated by the families in our respective parishes last December and January. The collection of clothing during Advent was aimed to assist our brother and sister migrant farmworker families in the Coachella Valley. Our Lady of Soledad Parish serves the often overlooked poor migrant farmworker. The donated clothing was delivered to the migrant farmworker community in the Coachella Valley by Our Lady of Soledad. The clothing was distributed on April 26th by Our Lady of Soledad at a Fiesta. Attached are a few photos that were received from Our Lady of Soledad.
Here’s a message from Our Lady of Soledad’s Pastor, Rev. Guy Wilson:
"On April 26th we had a celebration of approx. 1500 farm workers. These are photos from the celebration. We started with Mass in the Church followed by a procession with a banda to the Sanctuary of our Lady of Guadalupe. The celebration continued until late into the night with food, music and the distribution of the donated clothing. The coordinating committee and the far workers send their heartfelt gratitude. We now are making progress to build a Chapel near the farm worker communities."
Pueblo de Sal Y Luz ministers look forward to other collaborative efforts that can make a difference in actually reaching and touching the lives of the poor in our community.
