Mark your calendars for our second Natale Dinner celebration! Socializing will start at 5:30pm. Chef Ray Lucido is going to cook a delicious and traditional Italian Christmas dinner! Only 80 seats are available – adults only – and reservations are required by calling the parish office at 659-2224. Make reservations early since last year we were sold out. Tickets are $25 per person, wine included.
We are in need of volunteers for this special event. All helpers are invited to a preliminary meeting in the parish hall on Tuesday, November 17, at 7pm.
This feast will be celebrated on Saturday, Dec. 12. Mañanitas (songs and prayers) will be celebrated at 6:30 am. The solemn Missa de Guadalupe will be celebrated at 7 am and it will be bilingual. Given that this year this feast falls on a Saturday, we cannot have a Mass in the evening due to the regular vigil Mass for Sunday. Everyone is invited.
This weekend we begin, once again, our Christmas Angels ministry. There will be Angel tags at the entrance of the church representing a child – or even an adult – for whom we will provide Christmas gifts. So if you did not have a chance to help with the Tassajara fire fundraiser or turkey drive for Thanksgiving, you will have a chance to be an Angel to someone this season. You don’t have to buy everything on the list. Some tags may list a “dream item” like a bike – if you cannot afford buy something else on the list. For safety please do not wrap the gifts!!! The last day to return the Christmas Angels gifts is Thursday, December 17.
We invite all parishioners to be part of our Christmas decorations by bringing a poinsettia or more. All poinsettias in the church are placed in memory of our beloved deceased. Make sure to have a name tag since we are going to offer Masses for them. You can bring your poinsettia and leave it in the church anytime beginning with next weekend. We need more than 120 flowers if we want to make once again those beautiful Poinsettias trees. A Poinsettia Memorial will be published around Christmas together with the Mass schedule. Thank you for making our Christmas decoration beautiful and inspirational.
The Parish Council has been meeting to make plans for the future development of our Parish. We have been examining the development needs as expressed by leaders of each of our Ministries. Additionally, we have explored possibilities for the utilization of the vacant lot portion of our property and the associated water credits which will expire in 5 years. We are taking into consideration both the short and long term growth of our parish. After the first of the year, we will present to the Parish several proposals for your review and input that will address the needs and hopes for our ministries, the development of our physical structures, and our fund raising potential. Please feel free to discuss these issues with any member of our Parish Council: Chairman, Patrick Dowd, Alondra Klemek-Valdez, Catherine Norris, Fred Luiz, Jeff Hawkins, Jennifer Wynn, Joe Hertlein, Joni Zabala, Patrick Bacher, Maria Ortiz, Tedd Engdall, Tom DeRegt.
