Text Box: Last week second collection for the Peter’s Pence  amounted $ 2,865.00.

 This week, the 2nd collection  is for Parish Development. 

Next week, the 2nd collection is for Building Fund. 


       Many thanks to all those involved in the liturgy, the reception in the parish hall, the decoration of the church and hall, and to all who helped with the many preparations needed to celebrate so gloriously the Pontifical High Mass for the Twentieth Anniversary of the Tridentine Mass (now the Extraordinary form of the Latin Rite) in our church last Sunday with such beauty, joy and reverence.  May God bless and reward you!

       The month of October is dedicated to Mary under the name of the Most Holy Rosary;  October 7 is celebrated as the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.   In the 15th & 16th centuries, there were extensive promotions of devotion to the Rosary. On October 7, 1571, Christians won an important naval battle against the Moslem Turks at Lepanto (near Greece). The credit for the victory was thought to be the rosary. Pius V ordered that the annual anniversary of this victory be celebrated with a Marian feast of Our Lady of Victory. In 1573, Holy Father Gregory XIII permitted churches to celebrate a feast of the Holy Rosary. After another victory against the Moslem Turks in 1716, Clement XI extended the feast to the universal church.

       We have empty spots for Holy Mass intentions:NOVEMBER (11 Masses). If you would like to have Holy Mass celebrated for your intentions or for your loved ones (living or dead), please contact the parish office at: 510.482.0596, or email:
Text Box: Sunday Scripture
              God sends his Spirit upon those he chooses to do his work. Perhaps we think that God works in mysterious ways, picking some unusual people to carry out his work. Jesus reminds us that anyone who is not against God is with him. We must open our eyes, minds and hearts to see and accept God’s Spirit at work within  ourselves and in all the people around us. 
               The Spirit of God was with Moses and the seventy elders. The Spirit  was also with the two men who prophesied in the camp. In the Gospel, Jesus affirms that acts done in his name will be rewarded; but destruction will come to those who lead others astray. James warns us against riches gained at the expense of others.
