Lent is a time of grace and mercy, a time for works of prayer, fasting and charity. May God bestow his infinite mercy on us, leading us closer to peace. "the spirit of the Lord GOD is upon us, because the LORD has anointed me; He has sent me to bring glad tidings to the lowly, to heal the broken-hearted, to claim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners, to announce a year of favor from the LORD" (Isa 61:1-2)

We are a vibrant Roman Catholic Community of faith that is rich in the traditions of our faith and of our Parish.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

Christianity

On the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of Lent, at the 10am Mass, we celebrate the scrutinies with the elect of our parish, who are preparing for Baptist, Confirmation and Eucharist. The purpose of these rites is to deliver the elect from the power of sin and Satan, to protect them against temptation, and to give them strength in Christ, who is the Way, the truth, and the Life.

All the faithful will also derive benefit from the liturgy of the scrutinies.  We also have the duty to continue to pray for the elect and for those preparing for the reception into full communion with the Church, as we get close to Easter.

Pastors Desk 3/19/17

Bishops Appeal

Thank You for your generosity in supporting the Bishops Appeal Last weekend.  Deacon Malcolm did an excellent job explaining our responsibility to support all the things that our diocese provides; seminarians, deacons, youth ministry, canon lawyers, office of family life and much more.  We did not have enough envelopes in English; therefore, I have placed some in the pews this weekend.

DIOCESE OF SANTA ROSA 2017

ANNUAL MINISTRY APPEAL
The Annual Ministry Appeal, One Family in Mission, helps to support all ministries of the diocese, from seminarians to canon lawyers.  The chancery office supports every parish from Petaluma to Crescent City.  This year our parish goal is $29,866 and when we exceed our goal, 100% of the additional funds received are returned to us. Last year this was over $4000.  Many of you have already received a letter from Bishop Vasa containing pledge cards.  You can also donate online at www.srdiocese.org (Online Giving).
This weekend we will offer an opportunity to complete a pledge card during the Mass.
PLEASE PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER
A PLEDGE TO THE 2017 AMA

RESISTING HAPPYNESS

Need some spiritual reading for Lent?  Free Copies of Matthew Kelly’s’ book, both English and Spanish are available on the Baptismal font.

A true story about why we sabotage ourselves, feel overwhelmed, set aside our dreams, and lack the courage to simply be ourselves… and how to start choosing happiness again!

Are you happy? It may be the wrong question.  Ordinary people and the finest philosophers have been exploring the question of happiness for thousands of years, and theories abound. But this is not a book of theory. Resisting Happiness is a deeply personal, disarmingly transparent look at happiness.
