SAN BERNARDINO—Parishioners of the former St. Anne parish in San Bernardino are gearing up for a Summer reunion that will allow them to reconnect and share memories about this Catholic community that was founded in 1945.
The idea came about after Our Lady of Hope Pastor, Father Manuel Cardoza, called for a concerted effort to reach out to longtime parishioners of the three communities that were merged to form Our Lady of Hope in 2006. Those communities are the former St. Anne Parish, Christ the King Parish and Our Lady of Fatima Parish.
