Mass and Dinner with our Friends from St. Vincent Ferrer Parish

We are so blessed to have a long relationship with our sister parish, St. Vincent Ferrer in River Forest!

Each spring they visit us for Mass and dinner at our parish and every fall we do the same at their place. It is a wonderful opportunity to share our gifts, our cultures, and our lives with one another.

On Saturday, April 29, 2017, they came for their spring visit to St. Pius V. Thanks to all who participated, to the volunteers and in a special way to the Julia Center, for sending their dancers to present Mexican Folkloric Dance at our gathering.
