Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Every Thursday during Lent we will have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament following the 7:00 am Mass and concluding with a final blessing at 5:30 pm. This is an excellent opportunity for us to express our faith in Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament.

Friday Stations or Way of the Cross

Please remember the very prayerful tradition of the Way of the Cross on Fridays during Lent. We are beginning this year at 5:00 pm in the Church. Our 11:15 am Choir and 5:00 pm Spanish Choir will be leading us in music. Please join us on Fridays before the Lenten Dinners.

Lenten Dinners

Our next Lenten Dinner will take place this Friday, March 31, following our 5 pm Way of the Cross, beginning at 6 pm in the Parish Hall. Tickets are $15 per person. Children’s tickets are $5. The main course this week will be Grilled Swordfish and Linguine with Marinara with chopped clams. Ticket sales will begin at 4 pm.

Second Collection April 2, 2017

We will take a second collection next week for the parish grounds and building maintenance.

Easter Lily Mass Intentions

We invite you to offer an Easter Lily with a memorial or other intention. The plants can be left in the church or office from Wednesday of Holy Week until Holy Saturday at 10 am. Thank you.

Lenten Blessing Bags

Our Confirmation candidates are asking our help with their Lenten Service Project — Blessing Bags for the homeless. The bags will be filled with items that we can hand out to folks in need. Items might include: toothbrushes, toiletries, first aid kits, socks, granola bars, small bottles of water, hand warmers, beef jerky, etc. Thank you for your help!

Choir Singers Needed

Our OLMC choir needs a few more volunteers. The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 8:30, and sings at the 11:15 Mass on Sundays, as well as special liturgies throughout the Church Year, such as Holydays and the Holy Week Masses. There is no audition, and you need not be able to read music. Please call Director of Music Louis Lebherz at 831-392-5315 for more information.

2017 AMA Update

Our Diocesan AMA Appeal “One Faith, One Family” continues. We are very grateful for all of you that have returned your envelopes with a commitment. Presently, our commitments total $37,315. As this is more than our obligation to the Diocesan Ministries, all donations now remain at OLMC.

Youth Corner

Who is blind in today’s Gospel? (John 9:1-41) Is it the man born blind? The story begins with him being cured of physical blindness, but as the story progresses, we see that one can be physically blind and yet possess true vision. The Pharisees, for their part, possess physical vision, but lack the ability to see spiritual truth right in front of their eyes. Ask Jesus to open the eyes of your heart so that you many truly see God’s truth in your life!

Altar Servers Needed

Children, youth and young adults are invited to serve as Altar Servers or Acolytes for our Saturday and Sunday Masses. Please leave a message in the parish office forr Fr. Father Dennis if you would like to serve. Thank you. Your service would be greatly appreciated!
