Location: Church of the Resurrection, 1500 Ave. 53, Los Angeles, CA 90042 - Highland Park
If you’ve never attended a Misa con Mariachi - basically it’s a normal church service but a mariachi band leads the singing of various parts of the liturgy. It’s an especially festive way to worship.
St. Francis loved all of God’s creation, including animals. That is why Christians often bring their pets and farm animals to church on this day to have them blessed. At the conclusion of the service, we’ll have a blessing of the animals followed by an Italian pot-luck in honor of St. Francis (who was from Assisi, Italy).
