El Día de San Antonio
St. Anthony in tile


El Día de San Antonio (the Feast Day of Saint Anthony) has always been a special day in Los Sauces, Colorado. The annual celebration still takes place in June. This year will mark a special event. New church doors have been installed. This was made possible by the contributions of people with heritage ties to Los Sauces. The project was coordinated by Joe O. Marquez of the ¿Qué Pasa? Family Newsletter. In addition, donors have contributed funds to maintain future upkeep of the church. Memorial plaques commemorating former Los Sauces residents now deceased will be installed at the church as well. Both the new doors and memorial plaques will be dedicated at the upcoming Día de San Antonio celebration set for Sat. June 16, 2007. More information about the event will be forthcoming.
