Altar Servers Appreciation Day – Little Flower Basilica

On Sunday May 18, our Pastor and Superior––Fr. Luis Gerardo Belmonte, and Fr. Gregory Ross––our Vocations Director, offered the altar servers of Little Flower Basilica a well deserved recognition for the wonderful service they have provided in our liturgies, particularly during this past Holy Week.


All the servers were invited to attend the 11:00 a.m. Mass where they were recognized by Fr. Luis before the congregation.

Afterwards they and their families were invited to an afternoon cook-out at the Basilica’s gardens offered by the Knights of Columbus.

Before the meal, the servers were invested in the Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel by Fr. Gregory.

We all had a wonderful time amidst good food, prayer time, games, music and great company.
