From the altar servers...


On our trip to San Antonio, I had a blast!!! At six flags, I went on a ride called
Bugs White Water rapids like five times, and even though I got soaked I had an
awesome time at Six Flags!!! The Next day we went to the missions, we were able
to have Mass at the first mission Concepcion.  Mass was really nice!!!  Then we went to Mission San Jose where we had a tour guide, followed by Mission San Juan then we ended up going to Mission Espada (that was a surprise)!  One thing that everywhere we went had in common was that they were all hot cause it was like 101 everywhere!  All in All I had a blast!!!  Fun!!! Kewl!!! (Cool) EPIC!!! Blast!!!




This was my first trip in three years as an altar server.  I really enjoyed myself both at the Missions and Fiesta Texas.  This trip was a great experience for me and others.  This trip was really organized, educational and a lot of fun.  I would like to thank everybody who helped with this trip .  I hope we have similar trips in the future.  What I enjoyed the most was seeing everybody have fun.  Once again I would like to thank everyone involved especially Father Greg.

On Monday, June 13th the Altar Servers of Our Lady of Mercy went on a field trip to San Antonio.  We left early and spent seven hours at Fiesta Texas.  We got on rides like the Gully Washer and the Bugs Bunny Water Rapids.  This was a lot of fun for all the Altar Servers.  Later that night when we got to the hotel and we all went swimming in the pool.  The next morning we went to the Mission Conception where Father Greg held a Mass where the altar servers participated.  Our singing sounded nice in the old church.  We also went to the Missions of San Jose, San Juan and La Espada. I hope next year we have another great opportunity like we had this year.  I would like to thank our church and Father Greg for all the support given to us for this trip.

First of all I would like to thank everyone who helped out on this trip. The parents, Mr. Ayala, Arturo, and Fr. Greg. Without them this wouldn't be possible. It was totally worth waking up at 5:30am. We traveled in 3 rental vans and some went in personal vehicles. Thanks to Mr. Salinas we navigated easily through The Alamo City to arrive at Six Flags at around 11:00. There we separated into small groups. My group was at the waterpark all day enjoying the the water. The water was FREEZING!!!!!!!!!!! Later we were joined by others who wanted to cool off after riding rollercoasters like The Rattler. Afterwards we retreated to the hotel to relax a little. But at 8:00 we were all in the hotel pool. (Sometimes I think that we shouldn't have done that.) After that we were really hungry so we used coupons from Whataburger. The next day we traveled to Mission Concepcion to have a self-guided tour. Afterwards we celebrated Mass at their beautiful church. Then we went to Mission San Jose for a tour of their wonderful mission. It was under reconstruction so we couldn't go inside the church. Next, we went to Mission San Juan.  They had a small chapel and we prayed. We didn't stay long though. It was hot over there  with few trees. So we left after 15 minutes. Finally, we went to Mission Espada. A serene chapel and the hope of finding a small stream( with no luck) were the only highlights. Afterwards we headed home. At around 9:00 we got back to Our Lady of Mercy. God bless.
