Our next meeting will be on July 11, 2016 at Corkscrew Café. We will be reading Inner Compass: An Invitation to Ignatian Spirituality by Margaret Silf. It is available in paperback and Kindle edition at Amazon and in paperback at Loyola Press. From the book: “Ignatian spirituality is about finding God in our lived experience and allowing him to transform that experience, through his spirit, for ourselves and for the whole human family.” For our July meeting, we will read the first 3 chapters. If you would like to receive email notification of summer plans and future meetings, contact Pat Gray, 650-417-5902, firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Thursday, June 23 our first Agape Evening was held, and this new ministry is off to a great start. The topic for the first meeting was “Trivia” about our faith, and those questions were followed by music and dinner. Soon we will let you know the next topic and maybe even invite all dads to work on a BBQ. For more info please email Lindsay Beery at email@example.com.
We welcome the Ampon and Martorella families who recently joined our parish family. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to the Parsons who moved out of state. This summer do something special and invite a family to come and worship with you. Some people just need to be invited to get closer to God. You may be surprised how God works through your invitation. Help build our community of faith! Invite someone you know to church this week.
Heartfelt thanks to all parishioners who came last Wednesday to our town hall meeting. We discussed the three architectural projects for renovating/building the church and facilities. We were all in agreement that our facilities are way too small: we need more space for our religious education, social outreach ministries and community building such as parish hall/kitchen extension. A great deal was discussed on the possibility of transforming the current church into a parish hall and building a new church on the empty lot, closer to the road.
We are in need of substitute catechists in our First Communion ministry. You don’t need a diploma in theology! A catechist teaches our children the treasures of our faith in a simple, concise terms so that children can understand. We need substitutes for both years of formation. Please consider offering to teach our children at least for a year. These children, who are going to receive their sacraments, will always remember you!
Soon we will start once again the process of welcoming people who would love to know more about our faith and become Catholic. The RCIA has a threefold purpose and we extend an invitation to:
- those who are not associated with a church/community of faith and who wish to become Catholics;
- those who want to convert to Catholicism from another faith. For them, the RCIA is the process through which they will become fully fledged Catholics; and
- for those who want to learn about the Catholic faith.
These individuals may be involved in interfaith marriages or simply are actively involved in a Church of a different denomination and they want to learn more about the Catholic faith in the spirit of ecumenism. This ministry is also for baptized Catholics who have been away from the church or did not receive their Confirmation or First Communion. You can just join the program to see if it’s for you. If you have a spouse who worships with you but is not Catholic, maybe it’s a good time for you to discuss attending RCIA. Just email/contact us if you are interested to join.
