Friday, April 15th, 2022; La Sagrada Familia Parish, 7719 Detroit Avenue: Many colorful squares that make up a Holy Week Carpet adorning the floor of the gymnasium in the rear of the church. Following a tradition practiced in Guatemala and El Salvador, the carpet images are made from dyed saw dust. Parishioner Millie Ortiz recruited various groups to design carpet panels. Pastor Padre Francisco Honorato Garnica, CSJ says the different groups contributed artwork each creating a design for the carpet. After the evening Good Friday service, Padre Francisco says the parishioners will walk over the Holy Week Carpet destroying the images.
