  1. PLEASE NOTE: The dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation has been extended by the Archbishop until further notice.  Also: we will continue to provide Sunday Mass on live stream for those who cannot physically attend church.

  2. For those in a vulnerable group (age 65 and above or with any compromising health condition), you should refrain from coming to church at this time.

  3. Even if you are healthy but you are anxious, apprehensive, or in any way worried about your health or the possibility that not every single person may follow all prescribed procedures, then it is best to refrain from coming to church at this time. That is perfectly understandable.

Dia de Los Muertos

Altar Table at the Parish Hall

Parishioners are invited to drop by and place framed photos of departed loved ones at our Day of the Dead altar table, located at the Parish Hall.

Day of the Dead History:

"Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos is a series of commemorative days dedicated to those who have died. It is celebrated generally between Halloween, Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, and coincides with the Catholic holy days of All Saints (Nov. 1) and All Souls (Nov. 2).

Day of the Dead is actually divided into two distinct holidays, the first being Dide los Inocentes, which is dedicated to children on Nov. 1, and Dide los Muertos on Nov. 2, which is the actual Day of the Dead. Both days taken together are collectively referred to as the Day of the Dead, and celebrations can begin as early as Halloween (Oct. 31)..."

COME AND SEE

Discernment Weekends

 

Space is limited for the following weekends. Please register in advance.

October 16-18, 2020
November 6-8, 2020
March 5-7, 2021

 

Often the best way to begin discerning whether you are called to our way of life is to attend a “Come and See” Discernment Weekend at the Priory of St. Albert the Great in Oakland, California.

The weekend takes place in a “no-pressure” group setting with many other young men who are also considering the possibility of a Dominican vocation, perhaps for the first time. You will have a chance to see Dominican life first-hand, and to learn more about the Order through brief informational presentations by a number of priests and brothers.

Along with the opportunity to meet, socialize, and ask questions of the student and novice brothers in formation, guests also join the friars for the chanted Liturgy of the Hours, celebration of the Eucharist, and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

For more information, contact Fr. John Marie Bingham, O.P., the Director of Vocations at: vocations@opwest.org or 510-658-8722

The Archdiocesan Vision of Evangelization is a summary of the process on how someone becomes a missionary disciple. The vision and process of being a missionary disciple is in three stages:

Hear, Give, Go.

 

With every vision given to the Church by God, comes the extraordinary graces, vocational calls, charisms, and the supernatural vitality to carry out God’s dream for humanity.   

While the Archdiocesan Vision of Evangelization may appear to be simple, it contains a vision for life, ministry, and mission for Archdiocese within our time.  If we as individuals and entire parishes commit to make it possible that every person can HEAR Jesus’ call to be his disciple, help every person GIVE their entire life over to Jesus as his disciple, and equipped every person to GO and make disciples of Jesus, than the vision’s power will be realized. We will become witnesses and bearers of the extraordinary action of God for our world.

How does the Archdiocese of Los Angeles form Missionary Disciples?

The Missionary Discipleship Pathway is a series of evangelizing experiences offered to any adult who is curious about, or seeking to explore and deepen their relationship with Jesus.

Each VIRTUAL experience meets you where you are at in your relationship with Jesus and challenges you to take your next step along the pathway.

You are invited to travel this pathway by attending one or all three virtual experiences.

Explore the liberating truths found in Jesus' Death on the Cross and His glorious Resurrection from the dead.     

LARGE-GROUP EXPERIENCE:  October 14, 2020 • 7:00 – 9:00pm or  November 7, 2020 • 10:00am – 12:00pm 

CONTINUING PROCESS:  Four weeks of small-group meetings with different options throughout the week.

Explore the cost and abundance of the life Jesus offers with, “Follow me.”

Four week small-group process beginning the week of January 17, 2021. 

Discover God’s call for your life!  Discern your charisms (spiritual gifts) and begin to respond to God’s call. 

ONLINE SELF-STUDY: Begins April 17, 2021 with one month to complete. ONE-ON-ONE DISCERNMENT INTERVIEW:  Scheduled after completion of online study. SMALL GROUP MEETING EVERY OTHER WEEK:  Four weeks beginning the week of May 24, 2021.

"Faith is above all a personal, intimate encounter with Jesus, and to experience his closeness, his friendship, his love;
only in this way does one learn to know him ever more, and to love and follow him ever more."

Pope Benedict XVI, October 22, 2009, Feast of St. Bernard
