Seasons of Hope
Have you lost a loved one?
Fr. Francis' Bereavement Group, Seasons of Hope, resumes meeting this fall at Saint Dominic Church.
All are welcome!
The Rosary Confraternity (an Archconfraternity) is a worldwide association of many hundreds of thousands of people who have committed to praying at least 15 decades of the Rosary every week. They also pray for the intentions of all Rosarians (members of the Rosary Confraternity), uniting their prayers to yours. If you are not yet a member we encourage you to join us. Membership in the Confraternity gives the added blessing of having a share in the prayers, Masses and apostolic works of the entire Order of Preachers (Dominicans).
Why pray the Rosary?
Many Saints have recommended praying the Rosary. Recent examples include Saint Pope John Paul II, Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Saint Pio of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio), who said "In times of darkness, holding the Rosary is like holding your Blessed Mother’s hand. Pray the Rosary every day. Abandon yourself in the hands of Mary. She will take care of you." You are also joined in prayer with the Dominican family.
Everything we do here at the Rosary Center depends on your prayers and financial support. We wish to thank all of you for the wonderful support you have given to us, especially during these difficult times.
We are requesting you participate fully in the Novena by:
1) Making at least a Spiritual Communion each day during the Novena, and
2) By praying the Novena Prayer and Rosary each day during the Novena.

An Introduction to Catholic Social Teaching
with Fr. Justin Gable, O.P. Fr. Michael Hurley, O.P.
A look at the social teaching of the Catholic Church, beginning with Pope Leo XIII and his landmark encyclical Rerum Novarum in a historical and theological context. We will see how the themes and concerns of Rerum Novarum are developed by his successors Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII, and John XXIII. Among the themes of Catholic Social Teaching we will be exploring are human dignity, the common good, justice, peace, the preferential option for the poor, and the universal call to holiness and virtue.

Rancho San Antonio
Open House and Car Show
Sunday, October 3rd from 11am -3pm
Visit Online: http://ranchosanantonio.org/
For more than 70 years, our Archdiocesan Knights of Columbus have built and supported Rancho San Antonio Boys Home (Boys Town of the West) which is one of the states most effective residential treatment centers located in Chatsworth, right in our own pastoral region. The attached information indicates that over 15,000 wards of the court young men have graduated from Rancho since 1952.
God has blessed our pastoral region with the only remaining Catholic Boys Home in California. Recently, COVID and recent legislation threatens the continued existence of Rancho. Please help by joining the annual Rancho Open House on Sunday, October 3rd from 11am -3pm featuring an outside barbecue and large car show!
Do not let our regional treasure be overcome through lack of support and funding!
