Asian Commission of the Diocese of California Eucharist and Picnic a great success

The Asian Commission of DioCal (ACDC) held their third Annual Joint Eucharist/Picnic on Sunday, August 5 at Gellert Park in Daly City. A total of 105 people of all ages attended, coming from True Sunshine, Christ Church Sei Ko Kai, Holy Child & St. Martin’s (HCSM), and Our Saviour. In addition, the Rev. Eric Metoyer and CDSP seminarians Ren Aguila and Marjorie Buslig came and assisted at the Eucharist. The Rev. Leonard Oakes led the hymn singing with members of the HCSM choir and youth, who played Asian percussion instruments. Food was provided by True Sunshine, HCSM, and donations from Trader Joe’s and picnic attendees. The Rev. Merry Chan Ong led the karaoke singing and games. A great time was had by all. And during the Holy Eucharist, a total of $600 was collected and will be donated to the Diocese of Northern California to support their wild fire disaster relief efforts.
