Santa Isabel Los Angeles Celebrates Success with a Potluck!
This week Santa Isabel celebrated their extraordinary success with a delicious assortment of dishes prepared by the Campaign Executive Committee. They hosted a potluck dinner to commemorate the hard work and dedication that the team put into reaching their goal (see image below). Santa Isabel raised over $500,000 from 174 gifts from parishioners. Fr. Jesus Herrera views the Campaign as a positive experience that will benefit his parish in many ways. The benefit is not only monetary, but also an opportunity for the parish to come together and unite behind a common goal. Fr. Jesus thanked his Campaign Director, Victor Vasquez, for preparing and training him, and being a patient cheerleader throughout the process. When asked what led to his success, his answer is simple, “Stick to the plan, have a positive attitude, and trust in your Campaign Director”. Congratulations Santa Isabel!
