Along with the growth in Masses at Basilica Regina Pacis is a need for more altar servers. The parishes youth responded this year with another 35 servers in the ranks.
Parishioners filled the Basilica of Regina Pacis for the commemoration of the Faithful Departed — All Souls Day — Mass to pray for those who have gone on to their eternal rewards.
The 9 a.m. Spanish Mass has outgrown the Basilica of Regina Pacis, so a second Mass will be at 7:30 a.m. Sundays, starting April 11. Msgr. Ronald T. Marino, the pastor, said word is getting out that people can finally return safely to Sunday Mass, especially in the Spanish community, which is packing the basilica each week.
