Hundreds gathered at the Costa Mesa Hilton on Oct. 14 to pray together. It was the 10th Annual Orange County Catholic Prayer Breakfast and more than 700 woke early that Wednesday morning to attend.
The morning started at 6:30 with the Rosary, led by Stephanie Packer and her family. Following that, Bishop Vann co-celebrated the Mass with Bishop Todd Brown and Bishop Samuel Aquila, from the Diocese of Denver.
Next, the congregation moved to a banquet room for breakfast, fellowship and the keynote address by Bishop Aquila.
According to event co-chair Mark McElrath, this was not a fundraiser, but rather a “fun raiser.”ARVE Error: need id and provider
