We regret to inform you that this Saturday August 10th's Walking Tour has been cancelled due to lack of attendance. We understand Summer may not be the best time to schedule the walk due to heat and folks being out of town on vacation.

We will however have a new date in October and hope to have more participation then. Even if you were born and raised in Point Loma, we guarantee you will learn something new about our great neighborhood!

Dear friends,

As many of you already know, Brenda Lucas is right now fighting for her life in the hospital. We all feel helpless in situations like this but we believe that the best thing we can do is to unite in prayer for Brenda, for her family and for all who know and care about Brenda.

I would invite everyone who can to come to mass today at 5:30 pm at Saint Agnes Church and stay for a Rosary immediately after mass. The Rosary should start around 6 pm (in case you can’t come for the mass). PLEASE SHARE THIS PRAYER INVITATION with all your friends and feel free to post it in your social media. Hope to see you there.
