Fr. Chris Vargh­ese per­formed a song at the Feast of St. An­thony’s lun­cheon on Thurs­day.

He de­scribed his im­promptu mo­ment as a “movie love song” to ex­press how much he cared about the es­ti­mated 275 se­niors in at­ten­dance dur­ing this func­tion hosted by Sr. Ann Venita Brito and her Min­istry of Car­ing.

The lun­cheon was open to any­one re­gard­less of their re­li­gious af­fil­i­a­tion.

A ma­jor­ity came from places such as Val­ley CAPS, United Cere­bral Palsy of Man­teca, St. Jude Care Cen­ter, Pres­tige Se­nior Liv­ing, Al­mond Blos­som Es­tate Mo­bil Park, and The Le­gion of Mary.

The free hot meal was catered by Car­nice­ria Rosita of Tracy.

Cur­rent and for­mer stu­dents nearby St. An­thony’s School helped out as serv- ers.

The ac­tual St. An­thony of Padua Feast Day is June 12.

This one was held in con­junc­tion with Sr. Ann and her Min­istry of Car­ing’s se­nior lun­cheon, fea­tur­ing door prizes, live mu­sic, and other en­ter­tain­ment.

The free event is made pos­si­ble by the gen­eros­ity of parish­ioners, com­mu­nity mem­bers and var­i­ous busi­nesses such as Car­nic- eria Rosita, provider of the catered lunch.
