Happy New Year!

Our first event of the year is Nuestra Cultura, Nuestra Salud, an opportunity to celebrate our culture and our health, with two amazing activities occurring simultaneously!

For our culture, we will be celebrating the 3 Kings Day at St. Michael’s Hall from 10 am to 12:00 pm. A storyteller will narrate the story of this tradition.Enjoy food and music. The 3 Kings will arrive and bring gifts for children up to age twelve (12).
Please note that a responsible adult must remain with the children at all times.
To celebrate our good health, from 9 am to 1 pm Rochester Regional Health will be providing FREE mammograms (breast cancer screenings) for women over 40 in their exclusive coach, equipped with the latest technology. Health professionals staff the Mobile Mammography Center and screenings are done privately. It will be parked at the church’s parking lot.
Mammograms are done every 15 minutes, so at the time of registration please indicate what time slot you would prefer. We will do our best to schedule you at the time you select (first come-first serve).
