Mural of Brotherhood Unveiled at SGMHS

This mural depicting the connection between the San Gabriel Valley and Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico, was created by brother artists Robert Rivera Novoa

A lovely and dramatic image that depicts the connection between the San Gabriel Valley and Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico, was recently unveiled at the chapel at San Gabriel Mission High School in San Gabriel.

Created by brother artists Robert Rivera Novoa and Ernesto Rivera Novoa, the mural was donated through a sponsorship by the Benjamin Franklin Center Language Center in Celaya. The gift is part of the Murals of Brotherhood cultural and educational exchange program that aims to strengthen sister city relationships by highlighting the role and effectiveness visual arts play in affecting social change.

Roberto Novoa is currently an English as Second Language (ESL) professor at a polytechnic college in Celaya. A teacher for more than 20 years, Novoa’s murals are on display in many cities including Laredo and San Antonio, Texas, as well as Fullerton Community College.

The greatest of all truths in the universe

Archbishop José H. Gomez

A huge crowd was gathered to hear him, 5,000 people at least have come to him. And now the day is almost over and they’re far from home with nothing to eat. Jesus knows they are hungry and he wants to feed them. We can feel how much he cares for them, he loves them. His heart is moved and he really wants to take care of them.
