Today has seen the dedication of the Archiepiscopal Chapel of the Cathedral Parish of St Francis of Assisi and St Anthony of Padua at Elk Grove, California, by Archbishop Tony Scuderi, AEC Provincial of the West and Central Provinces.
Dr Scuderi has been working for some time on providing a space for public worship since he and his wife Heather moved to Elk Grove, and the photographs below show the results of this endeavour, including the dedication Mass and the blessing of the cornerstone. His mission strongly reflects his Franciscan heritage and is directed to all who are in need. The Eucharist is offered each Sunday with additional services as notified. Contact details can be found on the Missions page.
