Supportive community

Dear Editor:A sincere thank you to The Downey Patriot for the wonderful articles published in your newspaper regarding Father Gregory Boyle's visit to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church on Jan. 19. This event was a resounding success, people came from far and wide to hear this great man speak. No doubt the front-page story by Henry Veneracion on Dec. 9 was instrumental in broadcasting the good news. I would also like to thank Porto's, our new Downey bakery and cafe. They donated boxes of delicious pastries for this event. Their generosity was unexpected and much appreciated. We are fortunate to belong to this very supportive community of Downey! -- Nora Szechy, Downey
