The 2nd collection for this week is for Catholic Relief Services and CCHD

***Minimum needed to maintain the parish is $3,100

Please put your parishioner # on your loose checks.

Second Collections  

In order to make second collection easier all restoration and maintenance collections will be taken up on the 2nd Sundays of the month and all national and international collections will be taken up on the 3rd Sundays of the month. Collections for St Vincent de Paul or the Betty Chin Foundations will always be on the 5th Sundays of the month. The envelopes sent out to those who wish them have these collection envelopes in them. I wish everyone used envelopes as they are reminders to us to give our treasures back to God through our church. We should pray before we put anything into the envelopes as a sign that we have thought, prayed and now give a gift rather than think, “Quick we need to put something in the collection.” The envelopes should remind us to pray more in giving back to God rather than making the collections a business transaction.

Frs. Bernard & Rowell Say Mass

Fourth Sunday of Lent, March 22, 2020

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have created a YouTube Channel for our local Catholic community. We recorded Fathers Bernard D'Sa and Rowell Gumalay saying Mass today so those who are sheltering in place and unable to attend services would have access to Mass with their local priests. The video was shot in high definition. You can view it here or on any smart device (TV, phone, tablet or computer) that has the YouTube app. Be sure to turn on the HD setting to get the best picture and sound. You should also have the ability to make the video full screen. (Note: higher resolutions may not be available for the first several hours after uploading)

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notification of new posts. Don't forget to turn on the sound and adjust the video quality to your needs. You can click here or on the graphic below to go to our channel.

Weekly Reflection

Fifth Sunday of Lent

By Nina Sophie Heereman, SSD March 29, 2020 – Readings: Ezekiel 37.12-14; Romans 8.8-11; John 11.1-45

The Resurrection and the Life

“Oh, how foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have declared! Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and then enter into his glory?” (Lk 24.25-26). As he talks with the disciples on the road to Emmaus, Jesus speaks as though it were crystal clear that the entire mystery of his death and resurrection has been foretold by the Jewish Scriptures. But the two disciples, like many Christian readers throughout the ages, struggle to see how this could be so evident. More

Lenten Fast and Abstinence

Abstinence from meat is observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all the Fridays of Lent by all Catholics 14 years and older. Fasting is observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59. Those bound by this rule may take only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted as necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted. From its earliest days, the Church has urged the baptized and catechumens to observe the threefold discipline of fasting, almsgiving and prayer as a preparation for the celebration of Easter. Failure to observe individual days of penance is not considered serious, but failure to observe any penitential days at all or a substantial number of such days must be considered serious.

Pope Francis's 2020 Lenten Message

Pope Francis is calling on the faithful not to let the Lenten season of grace pass in vain, and to live as children of God acknowledging and obeying His law, in particular in regards to our brothers and sisters and to creation.

In his Message for Lent 2020, Pope Francis points to the paschal mystery – the mystery of Jesus’ Passion, Death, and Resurrection – as the basis of conversion. The Message bears the title "We implore you on behalf of Christ: be reconciled to God", a quote from St Paul's Second Letter to the Corinthians.

Easter Dinner-in-a-Bag Postponed

St. Vincent de Paul is asking that you hold on to your bags if possible for a late May giveaway that will be announced at a later date. If it is inconvenient for you to hold on to your bags please give them to someone in need. Please contact Georgeanne at 497-9929 if you have any questions. Thank you for helping us help others.

St. Vincent de Paul invites you to fill a grocery bag during Lent with unperishable items for an Easter dinner, including a box of potatoes, a box of rice, a bag of beans, a bag of pasta noodles, cans of fruit, cans of green vegetables, cans of yellow vegetables, Jello, a bag of wrapped candy and other items of your choice. SVdP will add a ham, bread, butter, milk and a dessert along with an Easter Basket of goodies for the recipient family.

Humor

An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender asks him, “You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it; wouldn’t you rather I draw fresh pints for you one at a time?” The fellow replies: “Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is now in America and the other, in Australia. When we all left home, we promised we’d drink this way to remember the days when we drank together.” The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.

The fellow becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way: he orders three pints and drinks them in turn. One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the regulars notice and fall silent, speculating about what might have happened to one of the absent brothers.

When the fellow goes back to the bar for a second round, the bartender says, “I don’t want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your great loss.” The fellow looks confused for a moment and then a light dawns in his eye and he laughs and says: “Oh, no, everyone’s fine. You see, it’s just that I’ve given up beer for Lent.”
