El Mensajero Católico’s staff opened its community celebration in honor of its 10th anniversary with a Mass held in conjunction with the second-annual leadership conference of El Instituto Pastoral Hispano. Bishop Salvatore R. Matano, publisher of El Mensajero Católico, celebrated the Mass, which was held at Rochester’s St. Michael Church, and Peruvian Father Lorenzo Ato served as the homilist. Father Ato was also the keynote speaker for the Oct. 3 Instituto conference. The Oct. 2 Mass was followed by a reception in the church hall that featured food and several music and dance performances.
