Tree Memorial

We started clearing the dead trees and the brush adjacent to the entrance drive. That area was not touched for probably two decades and there is a lot of work to be done. We also have some very old pines that are dying and present a danger to us but especially to our neighbors. Steps are already taken and plans are being prepared to remove them. This project of clearing around our property may take us few more months – especially removing the giant trees. Thus, we were thinking to do the tree planting in September or early October, whenever the rainy season starts. We will be planting palms, olive trees, lemon trees, ornamental trees and shrubs as well as some evergreens. Let us know if you are interested in sponsoring one tree or more. We have plenty of space to plant many trees.

Friends of Cachagua Children’s Center

The Friends of Cachagua Children’s Center (FCCC) is a recently formed 501c3 non-profit association whose purpose is to provide extracurricular activities for the children and youth of the Cachagua/Tassajara area. The association is tied to the Cachagua Children’s Center which is run by the Carmel Unified School District. The first fund-raising activity of this association is a garage sale to be held on June 4th, 8 am to 3 pm, at 40 Ford Road in the Village. All proceeds from this sale will go to FCCC. Please help our children by stopping by on June 4th, or donate directly by sending a check to FCCC, c/o Pat Gray, 40 Ford Road, Carmel Valley, CA 93924.

Altar Servers and Acolytes

Recently we just trained all children in our second year of First Communion as altar servers. It is our hope that many of them will become altar servers but we need the parents’ collaboration. At some Masses, especially at 4:30 Saturday and 9 am Sunday we don’t have enough children as altar servers at all Masses.

In an effort to improve our liturgies, we are renewing our invitation to all adults in the parish. There will be adult acolytes as well; this ministry of service will include the sacristan role of preparing for Mass, serving at the altar and preparing the altar for the Eucharist and Communion. Let the parish office know if you want to help as an acolyte. Training will be offered at the date/time of your choosing.
