Greetings, I pray that all are well and safe. The fires have not threatened the Church or the Church property in any away. A few parishioners in Newbury Park and Camarillo Springs got a good scars, had to evacuate and prepare to evacuate. All in all things are ok. The FIRE STAGING AREA is across the street from the Skyway property. Fire Officials have asked that we not USE EUBANKS. There are big rigs coming through! Please use Airport Way and come up Skyway from the front side. Also, you may want to come early to secure parking. Service this afternoon begins at 3:00PM Lamentations, tonight begin at 7:00PM God Bless, +FG

I remember one time seeing a family, carry-on luggage and all, scrambling to get off, realizing they were on the wrong plane after hearing one of these announcements. The vast majority of the time, however, the announcement is a reassurance that we are heading to our anticipated destination.
