A half mile long and thirteen feet high, among the longest murals in the world, spanning California history from the pre-Columbian period to the 1980’s. The brainchild of Chicana artist Judy Baca, it was re-painted in 2011…the colors remain vivid and bright even after two years in the sun. Worth seeing before it fades again Coldwater and Burbank.

Congregants of St. Catherine of Siena in procession on Sherman Way. Epiphany Sunday celebrates the arrival of the Magi in Bethlehem.  In various toungues it has meant ‘to manifest’; or ‘to shine upon’; or ‘to illuminate’.

Note the particularly striking Mitt Romney-like priest in white vestments, towering over his Filipino parishoners…
