Shrine to San Isidro
San Isidro Labrador was an 11th century Spanish farmer and rancher of Madrid. He was a simple hired hand, but his holiness increased his stature. His parents named him after another great Spanish patron, San Isidoro. In English both names are translated St. Isidore. The rural character of the South Valley makes San Isidro a great model. We hope to imitate his simplicity and piety. The shrine has become a main destination for our liturgical processions throughout the year, especially Corpus Christi. We schedule regular visits to this beautiful corner of our property for the children in our religious education program. During the week parishioners visit and pray there. Jaime & Anna Villegas underwrote its construction.
“Chito,” a friend of the parish, knows the art of building adobe walls.
The Shrine, meticulously maintained.
