At Peter Urban’s 90th birthday party, Loretto members and many Latino folks celebrated. A Mariachi band played to the delight of Father Peter. The St. Anthony parishioners prepared an extensive dinner for all. A Sister of Sorrows, Madre Mariana Bustillos from Juarez, Mexico, came especially to celebrate Peter’s 90th.
