OF OUR LADY  AT FATIMA;  1917—2008
       Every year from May to October in many Catholic Parishes around the world, Catholics celebrate the anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady to three Portuguese children: Francisco, Jacinta and Lucia. We plan to celebrate Fatima Services in our church every month with Holy Mass, the Rosary in different languages, and a candlelight procession. The Fatima Service will be this week,  on Saturday, September 13th 2008 at 7.30PM. Please save this date and inform others. If you speak other languages, please call Fr Stan (510-482-0596)

NATIVITY OF THE BVM -  September 8.   
       This 5th c. feast marks the anniversary of the dedication of a basilica in Jerusalem built, on the location of the home of St. Anne, the mother of  Mary; patroness of Cuba. On that day after morning Holy Mass, the Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary will be recited.

September 12. 
       God the Father is glorified by the exalted role in salvation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Thus, Her Name is a name of honor, a holy name, a maternal name, and name responsive to the needs of the Church. This memorial has been newly included in the Universal Calendar of the revised Missale Romanum, editio typica tertia (3rd edition). 

              A parishioner is in need of financial help to pay for a necessary medical treatment which can save his life - God willing.  This parishioner has no means to pay for this treatment as he is currently unemployed.  The cost of the treatment is about $4,000.  If you would like to contribute funds for this cause, please send your check to the rectory made out to St. Margaret Mary with the memo “medical treatment” written on the check.  You can place it in the collection basket, if you would like.  May God will reward your generosity! 
       Our Lord Jesus said: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”  Matthew 25:35-36
Text Box: Sunday Scripture

         We are challenged to correct wrongdoers, but in a loving way. Jesus challenges us to solve problems among ourselves quietly, with discretion and charity for the one with whom we are in conflict. We are not to gossip or damage people’s reputations, nor we to simply allow them to remain in serious sin. As disciples of Jesus we are to bring people to the truth, but in a charitable and Christ-like manner. In today’s first reading, God commands Ezekiel to confront the wicked and set them on a righteous path. Paul instructs us to follow Christ’s commandment to love our neighbor as our self. In the Gospel, Jesus points out that the church community is to  confront those in error and lead them from sin to the truths of the Gospel.
