Memorial Service Information:
The Mass will be held at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, corner of Homer and Waverley Streets in Palo Alto on Saturday, October 13. It will begin at 9:30 a.m.
A reception will follow the Mass and will take place at St. Albert the Great Hospitality Center, 1095 Channing Avenue, Palo Alto, which is just a few blocks away from the church. A map giving directions from the church to the hospitality center reception will be available at the Mass.
Parking at the church site is limited, so I would suggest that you carpool if possible and plan on getting there early in order to find a spot and get to the church on time. (Just a suggestion!)
