Family Day Hispanic Community Framingham – August 2014

On Sunday, August 17th, 2014, St. Stephen Parish in Framingham, MA hosted a “Family Day”. Starting off the day with a Mass dedicated for families, parishioners gathered for a beautiful Mass both in Spanish and English. The Mass was celebrated by Fr. Francisco Anzoategui, Fr. Albert Stankard and Fr. Gabino Macias. Fr. Albert Stankard and Fr. Francisco Anzoategui gave beautiful homilies in both English and Spanish, respectively, inviting families to make God the center of their family’s life.
