At the annual Mardi Gras in May gala benefiting the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Los Angeles, Father Peter Banks is among the honorees.  The priest, a member of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, is being lauded at the May 20 event by the Catholic lay organization for his decades of work with the poor and disenfranchised.  Born and raised in Sligo, Ireland, Banks is associate pastor at St. Lawrence of Brandish Catholic Church in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles and works each summer with the children attending the Society's Circle V Ranch camp across from Cachuma Lake.  Both environments are worlds away from the Santa Ynez Valley, where Banks is the beloved friar found saying Mass every Wednesday at Old Mission Santa Ines, and for the seniors at Atterdag Village and Friendship House.
Banks was newly ordained in Ireland…
