On the morning of April 25, 2008, a tragedy occurred to one of our Saint Mary Cathedral families, the Ancira/Astran family. An electrical fire consumed the home of John and Margarita Ancira and their four grandchildren, causing a total loss of their property and personal belongings. Due to the age of their home, it was a total loss without any insurance coverage.
A special account has been set up in their name at IBC Bank for parishioners to make monetary donations. All offerings can be submitted to:
Attn: John Ancira “Special Account”
816 Congress Ave., Suite 100
Austin, Texas 78701
Donations of clothing, gift cards, housing essentials, etc., can be dropped off in the Cathedral School of St. Mary office.
