Parishioners from the Church of the Nativity in Menlo Park on September 24 celebrated 150 years of spiritual service to the community with a crowded mass followed by a cocktail reception and dinner that included Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, who heads the San Francisco Archdiocese, covering Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties.

Church spokesperson Wendy Ames said the mass attracted a bigger turnout than she had seen in the past two-and-a-half years. Ames added the celebration lasted a full year, with dinners, an auction, a golf tournament, a carnival and other events leading up to the official observance of the church’s 150 years in Menlo Park.
