Diocese 50th Anniversary Mass
DIOCESAN 50TH ANNIVERSARY EVENTS
The Diocese of Fresno is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and Bishop Ochoa has been celebrating this Golden Anniversary throughout the nine diocesan Vicariates. Calling to mind the old days of the “Mass Car,” Bishop is using a Mass trailer to get to historic sites in all Vicariates of the Diocese of Fresno. Bishop will be in the Tulare Vicariate on Friday, September 8th, 2017, to celebrate a special Mass at 5:00 p.m. in the Agriculture Museum Plaza in Mooney Grove Park (27000 S. Mooney Blvd.) All those wishing to attend should enter by the main entrance gate and identify themselves as attending the Golden Anniversary Mass so that the parking fee of $6.00 per car will be waived.
This Mass is especially significant for Good Shepherd Catholic Parish as it will be celebrated on the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the feast day of St. Mary’s Church. All parishioners and friends are invited and encouraged to assist at the Mass as we recognize this milestone anniversary for our Diocese of Fresno and thank God for all the blessings received over the last 50 years.
