Basque Catholics:  "Euskaldun--Fededun"

This includes news & information for the Basque-Catholic community.  Now that we no longer have a dedicated Basque chaplain, it will be up to each community--the laity--to step up and keep this a part of our Basqueness.

KEEPING THE BASQUE MASS IN OUR FESTIVALS.  We no longer have a Basque chaplain from the Basque Country because there too they have a shortage of priest.  Thus we have hit the crossroads as a Basque Catholic community, specifically in relation to the fate of future Basque masses at our annual festival celebrations.  It now falls to each community to develop a Plan B.  We have some material available to assist those who would like to formulate their own hybrid version of a Basque-English mass.  To see those click on Basque-English Mass material

Fr. Mike Lastiri is offering to assist Basque clubs with the celebration of a Mass in Basque/English at any festivals this year.

Jainkoaren beharrik ez dutela uste duten jendeeri."
