Why Catholic?

This fall, our parish will be implementing a new ministry called Why Catholic. Why Catholic is a series of six week sessions, in the fall and spring, designed to bring faith sharing communities together to deepen our beliefs and understanding of our Catholic faith. Our first session will be on prayer and deepening our relationship with God, and each other, through prayer.

Each faith community will have a group facilitator and will consist of 8 to 10 members who will meet weekly for six weeks, starting in early October and ending in mid November. We are looking for members of our parish, and faith community, to sign up as either participants and/or facilitators. The number of sign ups will determine how many facilitators we will need. Sign-ups will be after church, both this weekend and two weekends from now, if you are interested. On another note, if you are not comfortable being a facilitator, but would be ok hosting the group as a participant, that is an option as well. If you have any questions, please contact Tess Arthur at tessors@hotmail.com/831-596-5170 or Alondra Klemek at lalavk@hotmail.com/831-277-1294.

Second Collection

Our 2nd Collection this Saturday and Sunday, August 19 and 20, is for Hope’s Pantry and Social Outreach.

2017-2018 Faith Formation

Families with children or youth wishing to prepare this year for the Sacraments of the Eucharist (First Communion) and Reconciliation (First Confession) or Confirmation (High School students) are invited to register next weekend, Saturday and Sunday, August 26 and 27, following our Masses or stop by the office during the week for a registration form.

Adults who would like to become baptized members of the Catholic Church through our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults), as well as adults wishing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, and adults who would like to enter into Full Communion with the Catholic Church (those baptized in another Christian tradition) are also invited to register.

Parish Faith Formation — Catechists Needed

We are now planning for our 2017-2018 Faith Formation Classes for children, youth, and adults of our Parish. We are in the need of additional Catechists. Please consider sharing your faith by serving our Lord and OLMC as a Catechist. Training will be offered. Please contact Fr. Dennis in the Parish Office.

Your Savior is a dark-skinned Jewish
man from the Middle East who spoke Aramaic.
His mom was Jewish, too.
