Church holds annual festival

Parishioners serve tortas during the San Juan Fiesta at Iglesia de San Juan Bautista (St. John the Baptist Catholic Church). The all-day festival, which features live entertainment and a raffle, is held every year to raise money for the church. June 24 is recognized as the birthday of St. John the Baptist, a prophet who foretold the coming of the Messiah in the person of Jesus, whom he later baptized. St. John is located at 506 S. Lincoln Ave. and holds weekly Masses in both Spanish and English. (Timothy P. Howsare Photo)
