St. Bede the Venerable of La Cañada held a 25th anniversary Mass of the ordination of Msgr. Antonio Cacciapuoti on June 14. The silver jubilee celebration brought together family, friends and parishioners from St. Paschals, Christ The King and from as far away as the Diocese of Aversa, Italy. The Mass was celebrated with Archbishop Emeritus of Los Angeles Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, bishops, pastors and deacons from California.
