California Exhibit of Paul Badde's Photographs of Holy Face of Manoppello
At 4PM on December 31, 2008 Fr. Lawrence Goode, Pastor of St. Francis of Assisi Church in East Palo Alto, California, inauguarated an exhibit of photographs of the Holy Face of Manoppello taken by Paul Badde. There are accompanying articles explaining the Holy Face in English and Spanish taken from the official website of the Shrine of the Holy Face in Manoppello: www.voltosanto.it. The exhibit is situated just to the right of the Main Altar of the church adjacent to the Baptismal font and to the statue of St. Joseph. In the photograph can be seen Fr. Goode together with the parishioner Placida Nava who had just returned from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The Church of St. Francis of Assisi is close to Highway 101 at 1425 Bay Road, just about half way between the cities of San Francisco and San Jose. The pastor hopes that the exhibit of the Holy Face will be a source of hope, inspiration and prayer for the many people who attend this church whose lives are often difficult.
