Hispanic Heritage Month in PA


       Friar Orlando Reyes, OFM Cap., reports that the city of Harrisburg, PA, celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with a special Mass on Sunday, September 14, followed by an outdoor festival. Bishop Ronald Gainer was the main celebrant and homilist for the Spanish Mass, marking the 70th anniversary of the diocese’s ministry among the Hispanic communities. Later current Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett made remarks on the Capitol steps. Fr. Orlando and the Governor had a few moments together during the celebration.

      Along with other parishes, members of St. Francis of Assisi Parish where our friars serve contributed to the variety of Hispanic nations represented with a performance accompanied by cello and violin, as well as the song De Colores, sung and danced by four girls from the community.
