This is the second “Invade the Bar” series started by Fr. William Goldin. The first series was in conjunction with Our Lady of Fatima in San Clemente and is still available for streaming on the Guadalupe Radio App at https://www.guadaluperadio.com/cartelera/serie/539/1.
“It’s a beautiful thing to see so many people enjoying themselves in community while learning more about the faith and having a great meal,” said Fr. Goldin. “That’s the whole point of CIB: learning about the truth, and having a blast (and a Margarita!) while doing so.”
