No Mass Monday-Thursday
This week there are diocesan meetings in Ukiah for all the priests. I will not be attending because of a family wedding next weekend; however, there will be no weekday masses this week from Mon-Thurs. Fr. Peter will be here for mass on Friday and available for emergency and sick calls.
Going To Europe
Both Deacon Malcom and I are traveling to Europe this week, I to a family wedding in Greece and Malcom on his first trip to Europe. Malcom has been planning this trip for a couple of years, so it is my fault that we will both be gone at the same time; however, we are leaving you in capable hands.
Welcome Fr. Gary Lombardi Next Weekend
Fr. Gary, who was ordained at St John’s in 1969, will be covering all the masses next weekend. Fr. Gary is a good friend; I was his associate for 3 years at St. Vincent’s, he loves this parish and is looking forward to being back in the place of his 1st assignment.
A Message from Bishop Vasa
As our hearts continue to go out to the countless families affected by the wildfires, we are encouraged by the powerful response from all people of goodwill. The Chancery reopened on Monday October 16th, but will not be fully staffed as some staff have left the area due to the evacuations.
We have created a web page on our Diocesan website to donate specifically to help alleviate the incredible financial toll the fires have had on our school communities, and parish families.
Please go to www.srdiocese.org/signofhope to make a donation as soon as possible. Every little bit helps! You can also sign up to offer one hour of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament each week, as well as submit your own story of how you have experienced your own sign of hope in the midst of this trial.
Benefit for Cardinal Newman High School
Please join Saint Vincent de Paul High School for a Spaghetti Feed and raffle benefiting the Cardinal Newman families, faculty and staff that have been affected by the fires. Mass is 6-7pm and dinner 7-10pm. Cost is $20 per person. You can also make a donation on-line and designate it to the “Cardinal Newman CommunityBenefit.” Goto: https://www.svhs-pet.org/essential_grid/spaghetti-feed/
