INDIO—Bishop Gerald Barnes joined the parish community of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Indio on June 26 to celebrate an effort of hope and collaboration.
On the eve of the parish’s feast day Bishop Barnes came to bless a new tabernacle, monstrance and ciborium. The tabernacle was replaced after the original was stolen during a series of burglaries at the parish in February. The gold-plated tabernacle was worth more than $20,000.
