On Saturday April 28th, our group celebrated St Peter Chanel's feast day with the parish. We processed in under the
T.O.M. banner, lead the rosary before mass and received communion as a group. Prior to mass, Joyce Albert had
given a short talk on St Peter Chanel and a little history on the group activities at the parish. Everyone interested was
invited to join us at the monthly meetings.   

Two events were held in May:
On Saturday, May 5th, we held the annual parish May crowning. Mr Fabien Becnel Sr (100 years old) our senior
member was honored to carry our Lady's crown. His son Fabien Jr did the actual crowning. The parish honored our
Lady with flowers and song.
