The church was filled with relatives, friends and parishioners. From Plainville Sisters Diane Dube, and Pauline Ayotte, from NY Sisters Norene Costa and Christine Carrigg, from Swansea Sr. Antoinette Gamache, from Lincoln, RI Sisters Mary and Jackie Crepeau came to join the St. Timothy community. There would have been five more, but the pouring rain (sleet farther north) prevented them from travelling.
The pillar is in Chicano Park under the Coronado Bridge. It depicts the immigrants who have worked in our fields to harvest the food on our table, immigrants who have constructed our buildings, immigrant children who have studied in our schools and religious education programs, immigrants who have died crossing the border through the desert to provide a better life for themselves and their families. The Border Angels have been a presence in the community and along the border wall extending love and compassion - "love has no borders".
At the end of these wondrous days of celebration, when we have heard and seen so much, as our senses have been bombarded with the sights, sounds, scents, tastes, and FEEL of India’s complex gifts, let me begin by inviting us all to take a few moments of silence with this question: “What is it from this time together I want to hold and carry back with me”?
