Christmas Concert and Reception
Early in December the combined choirs of all the Masses and some guests from the Los Altos Community provide a concert of seasonal music followed by a reception in the larger parish hall at St. William.
One Saturday in October Countryfest is a time for the community to get together for an evening of dining and dancing. The St. William hall is decorated, the food is prepared on site and there is a live band. The last two years we have been fortunate to have the Bell Brothers perform and line dancing taught. Ania Scicinska has been the chef since we started. Her potato salad is always a highlight. Join us for a fun relaxing evening.

Ad hoc committees are formed to host receptions before or after special event. These include speakers, retirements and Easter Vigil to name a few. For more information contact Lidia at the parish office, email@example.com
