St. Joseph festival set in Carpinteria

The seaside town of Carpinteria will gather to celebrate St. Joseph Church’s 57th annual festival July 11-13 on the grounds of the 81-year-old parish.

The festival is the main fundraiser for St. Joseph Church; it provides funds for the many ministries which meet the spiritual needs of the St. Joseph community throughout the year. Among the many ministries and outreach efforts is a thriving “Resale Shop” operating during the week, and a twice-a-month Food Distribution Support Ministry for people in need, including the working poor.

Live entertainment (including Flamenco and folkloric dancers, plus live bands), a variety of foods and rides and hourly raffle drawings will take place at the festival, which runs 5-11 p.m. July 11, noon-11 p.m. July 12 and noon-9 p.m. July 13.

St. Joseph Church is located at 1532 Linden Ave., Carpinteria. Information: (805) 684-2181.

25th anniversary of the martyrs of El Salvador: The current ‘coyuntura’ invites solutions

Rev. Michael Kennedy, S.J.

I remember visiting the University of Central America (UCA) in El Salvador with Jesuit Fathers Paul Locatelli and Steve Privett in 1988 and speaking with Father Ignacio Ellacuria, the president of the university. Father Ellacuria used the word coyuntura countless times during our lengthy conversation.
