Parishioners at Mission San Miguel welcomed a new pastor on Sunday. Fr. Pedro Umana comes from Shafter where he served for nine years. Fr. Ignatius DeGroot, who was assigned here only 14 months ago, was expected to stay for a few years, but he was needed at an Apache Reservation parish in Arizona. Fr. Umana has been a Franciscan for over 30 years and has served in Utah and Rome as well as in several parishes in California.
